I will be speaking at the New York Farm Bureau (“NYFB”) Farm Animal Welfare Symposium titled “Why Isn’t Good Care Enough?” in Syracuse on April 7, 2011. The event is closed to NYFB members only. Kay Johnson Smith, the Executive Vice President of the Animal Agriculture Alliance, will be the keynote speaker. Other speakers on the panel include Steve Kopperud of Policy Directions Inc., Dr. David Smith from the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets, Laura Harshbarger, Esq. from Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC, and Kathy Finnerty from the New York State Cattle Health Assurance Program (“NYSCHAP”). In preparation for the conference, I would love to hear from New York livestock producers regarding the farm animal welfare issues that are most important to them. Please post your thoughts here or email me at email@example.com.
As an aside, Happy National Ag Day! Be an advocate for agriculture today and help spread the good word on the work that farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness folks are doing to give Americans the safest, highest quality, most affordable food in the world.
