Please, call me "Mom"
In the past few years, ranchers have realized that while they were busy feeding cattle, baling hay, and tagging baby calves people have been asking questions about how their food is raised...and we've ignored them. We have continued to get the work done, complaining that people are listening to activists about how food is made and getting the wrong idea. But until recently, we have done nothing about it. Unfortunately, that allowed many activist groups to get a food-hold and consumers are listening to them instead of asking the people who do the work.
This is your chance to ask me anything! Please take advantage of it! Everyone who asks a question in the months of April or May will be eligible to win $20 of Beef Bucks that can be used in your local area to buy beef. So not only can you get your question answered, but you can win! Please be sure to post a link to your site or email address so that I can get in contact with you at the end of May.
I have to close with one of the best comments ever about some of my latest publicity...notice on the top photo the teaser headline for the women in ag story states I'm "Tearing Down Fences." A friend asked "who rebuilds all those fences you keep tearing down?!" Luckily I have a fence-building crew of kids who do an awesome job!!
