Animal Ag Engage

College Aggies Dairy Blogs

BJ_smCcCcAAj8MfMy grandfather always told my sisters and me to treat the cows like ladies because that is exactly what they are. He taught us to respect all of our animals, treat them well, and keep them happy. Those ladies deserved that. Without them, we would be nothing as farmers and as consumers. With lessons like that engrained into my mind, I find it hard to hear that people so far removed from the agriculture industry believe the myths about cows being treated badly on farms like my own. Myths and lies spread like wild fire while the truth takes a while to catch up and fix the damage. However, as an “agvocate,” that difficult job is taken in stride.
Our College Aggie participants partook in a “personal branding” webinar with Dairy Management Inc. this week, where they learned how to be effective in their “agvocating” as well as how to represent themselves to the public. The posts (listed below) either summarize what they learned in that webinar or use that information to represent the dairy industry. The blogs range from discussing athletes and chocolate milk (which go together great in case you didn’t know!) to the differences in beef and dairy cows. The participants wrote some amazing blogs and have proven themselves to be strong agvocates for the industry.
