Animal Farmers Talk About Animal Welfare


Over my time of blogging for agriculture, I have realized that animal agriculture has a perception problem. For example, many people that are completely supportive of other modern agricultural production methods think that farm animals are widely abused. While we don’t have animals on our farm and it doesn’t directly affect me, I hate to see that my animal farmer friends are so poorly viewed.

To combat some of these misconceptions, I asked animal farmers pertinent questions about animal welfare, animal care, and the intersection of profits. In this 3-part series, you can get some perspective and feedback from actual farmers on these issues. If you want more information, feel free to check out the link after each answer directing you to the farmer’s Facebook page.

AmandaMy name is Amanda. I’m the proud daughter (and sister!) of conventional farmers in Southwest Michigan. I’m also a practicing attorney. For 26 years, my family ran and supplied a roadside market selling our own fresh fruits and vegetables. We now farm corn and soybeans.

Unfortunately, misinformation about food and agriculture is pervasive these days. My goal is to help educate consumers about conventional farming and give people a glimpse into how our food is raised and why certain production methods are used.
