Update for December 04, 2008

World Dairy Expo - DairyCast visited with a number of dairy producers and industry leaders from around the world, each offering a unique view of our industry and how we can work together to make our industry better. That dedication to improving the industry was evident in the number of participants in each of the education seminars. We are thankful to have the opportunity to capture each of those seminars and provide them to our DairyCast audience around the world.

National FFA Convention - Over 50,000 young people gathered together with their passion for agriculture and the goal of feeding a growing world population. While the challenges we continue to face seem to be more dynamic than ever, we are fortunate to have young leaders with the passion and desire to solve them all and lasso the moon, too.

The challenges presented to our industry are beyond the rising production costs that end at the farm gate. The presence of the Humane Society of the United States has also risen substantially as they dedicate millions of dollars from their packed coffers to the ballot initiative Proposition #2 in the state of California.

As you are probably aware the proposal restricts the freedoms of livestock producers and constrains their production practices through the implementation of housing size minimums in the name of "animal welfare." The need for unity in the voices of all agriculturalists has never been greater than today.
