It’s time for another edition of the Weekly Round Up! This week, we’re talking graduates, more GMOs, Monsanto and cows.
- My friend, Holly Spangler, over at Prairie Farmer this week reposted this blog she wrote last year, giving the graduates out there some advice as they jump, head first, into their futures. It’s a pretty great read, graduate or not.
- This, because no truer words were ever spoken. Proof, again, that 4-H teaches more than just ‘farm stuff.’
- The fall out from Chipotle’s announcement just keeps on comin’. This opinion piece, from USA Today, was a pretty interesting take on Chipotle’s announcement. I’ve posted I don’t know how many links to stories and opinions on Chipotle’s recent anti-GMO announcement, but this one is a little different. Not only does it analyze the company itself, but some interesting aspects of society in general.
- Katie Pratt is at it again, this time taking on the March Against Monsanto protestors. Katie talks tools in the farmer’s tool belt and how they related back to Monsanto and even the March Against Monsanto protestors. As always, great info that’s easy to read and easy to share.
- This, because I love a good, corny joke.
- This piece, from AFBF President Bob Stallman, which talks about responsible corporate policy and how bowing to the loudest voice doesn’t always equate to the smartest corporate policy. Don’t own a corporation? Don’t worry. These are principles you can apply to your life no matter what. Read: sticking to your guns.
- And finally, my favorite share this week. A post that my friend, Mary, at Mackinson Dairy, posted on her blog. It’s a guest post from a friend of hers named Heather. In the piece, Heather talks about the healing power of her cows, especially during a particularly difficult time in her life. It’s a heartbreakingly beautiful piece and so worth the read. But make sure you have the tissues handy.
