New Tools Encourage Conversation about Animal Agriculture

New Tools Encourage Conversation about Animal Agriculture

“Start the Conversation: Let’s Talk About Animal Agriculture” is the first in a new series of resources the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is launching to foster discussion on questions consumers have about food production and agriculture.


Modeled after quick-reference subject-area cards found in bookstores, the single-page, front and back laminated cards feature questions, answers and suggested strategies for meaningful discussion.


“Our goal is to help connect consumers with the men and women who produce their food, fiber and fuel – while giving them an opportunity to confidently discuss issues most important to them,” said Julie Tesch, executive director of the Foundation.


The cards feature “farmer spotlights,” with real answers to important questions such as “Can animals be raised without antibiotics?” and “How are decisions made about animal care?”


Start the Conversation cards may be used to:


-- Facilitate discussions about fact, fiction and the science of agriculture in middle- and high-school classrooms;


-- Open discussions about food and farming at fairs and festivals; and


-- Equip farmers and ranchers with science-based messages related to common consumer questions.
