Troy Hadrick Believes in Promoting Agriculture One Story at a Time

Tue, 15 Feb 2011 5:53:39 CST

Troy Hadrick Believes in Promoting Agriculture One Story at a Time Troy Hadrick and his wife Stacy decided several years ago that they needed to stand up for the industry and lifestyle they love- farming. According to their website, Advocating for Agriculture, "Troy and Stacy realized right off the bat that the best way to combat negativity toward agriculture was to stand up and tell your own story. No one can dispute your story. It is yours. But for too long, those of us in agriculture have been letting someone else do the talking for us. They also realized that they canít do it all themselves.


"In 2006, Troy and Stacy decided that they needed to share the importance of standing up and telling the story of agriculture with producers. What started out as a 25 minute speech at the South Dakota Women in Agriculture Conference has evolved into Advocates for Agriculture. Word traveled fast about this young couple in South Dakota and soon they were being asked to speak at locations across the United States."


We caught up the Hadricks at the Cattle Industry Convention in Denver, where they offered instruction to those going through the Masters in Beef Advocacy program. As we talked with Hadrick about opportunities to tell the story of agriculture, we discussed his famous YouTube video of pouring out the wine in a bottle of Yellow Tail Wine in protest to that company supporting the HSUS. That video was posted a year ago- and it caused a major pushback by supporters of livestock agriculture, which resulted in Yellow Tail backing away from future support of the Humane Society run by Wayne Pacelle.


We also talked about the ways that social media can be used in a positive way to tell agriculture's story. You can hear our full conversation with this ag advocate by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
