Hi everybody it’s time for your Land and Livestock Report here on the Ag Information Network of the West-I’m Russell Nemetz.

Hannah Thompson-Weeman is the Communications Director at the Animal Agriculture Alliance. And she says October is upon us, and that means school is in full swing for everyone from kindergarteners to college students.

Pop quiz: Do we need to be concerned about what those students will hear in class and on campus about animal agriculture?

Unfortunately, the answer is yes. Kids and young people are prime targets for animal rights activist groups.

It starts as young as kindergarten, with HSUS producing a classroom magazine for students in grades K-6 along with downloadable ‘humane worksheets.’

She challenges all of us to do one thing this fall to engage youth in your area and help them learn about modern agriculture. It could be offering a field trip to your farm, speaking to a class, donating books with an accurate view of agriculture or something else.

Learn more by visiting www.animalagalliance.org.

That’s your Land and Livestock Report-I’m Russell Nemetz.
