Coming off the heels of my video conference appearance, I'll be traveling to San Antonio this coming weekend to participate in the 90th Annual Meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation. I'll be part of a three-member panel discussing why those of us in animal agriculture need to share our personal stories and correct the misconceptions people have about what we do. We'll also be sharing the methods that have worked for each of us. If you'll be attending the big event, our workshop's room & time assignment can be found on page 7 of the AFBF's meeting program, and a more in-depth preview is available via AlfaFarmers.org.
I'll be sharing the stage with two nationally-known and widely respected ag advocates, Chris Chinn and Michelle Ganci. I'm not exactly sure how I sneaked in there with them (my resumé certainly doesn't match up!), but I'll give it my best shot. Time to get back to work on that Power Point presentation!
