Guest Speaking

Ryan’s goal is to not only encourage producers to tell their story but also to give them the tools to be successful.  He looks forward to expanding this goal through training presentations with cattlemen’s associations, commodity groups, students and local organizations.  He wants his passion and love for the agriculture industry to help encourage others to do just what he is doing; telling the story of…

America’s Farmers and Ranchers.

Thankful for Agriculture

In November 2010 the blog hosted a month-long series titled “Ag-Thankful”. Through a series of guest-posts and features on the topic, many bloggers in the Agriculture business joined in to help me share why we are thankful to be a part of Agriculture. It is a great opportunity to remind consumers who produced the food on the table for their Holiday Feasts. Follow this link to search for all Ag-Thankful related posts.

  1. “You possess a really interesting blog. As well a lot of blogs that I see now don’t actually provide something that I am interested in, but I am definately considering this one. Just considered that I would pass that message on. “


  2. I love reading your posts and I wish I were as witty as you when responding to ag critics.Eric Schuler, who is a writer for Boise Vegan is so misinformed it kills me. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Eric dressed as a chicken protesting the opening of the Chik-fil-a in Boise a few weeks ago. While his article is not on cattle I thought you might find it interesting to read. I have added the link.

    Keep up the good work!
