Time for another edition of the Weekly Round Up. Buckle up, here we go!
- This, from my broadcasting friend, Meghan Grebner. Meghan’s cousin is the star of the article and the article — and the story — is SO. WORTH. THE. READ. For more on Dalaney and her experience judging at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, check out Brownfield Ag News.
- This blog, from Illinois farm mom, Emily Webel, was published last week and I loved it. Then, I promptly forgot about it. Because I’m awesome. So, I’m posting it this week. In her post, Emily writes a letter to her local County Market, calling them out for misrepresenting conventional agriculture.
- This. Because, of course.
- Did you see this? I mean, how awesome would hangover-free wine be? Sign me up, please!
- This article, from NPR’s The Salt, which combines two of my favorite things: food and marketing. It’s super interesting, and in an added bonus (or not?) it will make your mouth water.
- This, because it’s oh so true. Don’t ask me how I know.
- And did you see this story (and the follow up video) from Indianapolis about a farmer who saved a calf who had been born in the cold by warming the calf in his family’s hot tub? How do you clean that up?
- And, finally, this, which was posted a couple of weeks ago but I just had a chance to read this week. As a new (does mothering a 10 month old mean I’m still a new mom?) mom, it spoke to me. Both because of the food information in there, but also because of its message to all moms: no judging. We’re all doing the best we can.
