I don't think anyone could have said it better.
Last week there was a little disruption on the K-State campus. Our college newspaper, the Collegian, ran two stories that could be labeled as anti-agriculture. They ruffled more than a few feathers, including mine. As I talked to students and alumni what many were struggling with was what should I say, they weren't quite sure how to formulate a response. As farmers and ranchers we know we treat our livestock with the utmost care, we have a passion for producing safe, quality food, but how do you convey this message - along with the facts - to those on the opposition.
A few days later a pro agriculture article ran in paper, and it was a nice article. I am glad that the editors ran it. However, this response in the form of a letter to the editor is awesome. I wish I knew who the author was to give them props. It's definitely worth reading, and I am pretty sure I am going to take this approach in some of my responses from now on.
