Animal Ag Alliance Seeking Farmers and Ranchers to Be a Part of the Allies Program to Advocate for Agriculture The Animal Ag Alliance is offering a new program to empower farmers, ranchers, and practicing veterinarians to be outspoken advocates for agriculture online and within their communities. The new program is called the Animal Ag Allies, and Associate Farm Director KC Sheperd spoke with Emily Solace about the new program, "The goal of the program is to elevate the voices of farmers and ranchers and empower them to be outspoken advocates for agriculture online, and within their communities."

The Alliance is currently seeking participants to enroll by August 7. Solace says they are looking for participants who are already active on social media and those who want to learn how to handle the hot-button issues that can sometimes be controversial, and Solace says equipping producers with the tools is the key, "Developing them further to be a strong advocate for agriculture."

There will be five modules of the training process. All of these modules are available online and can be completed at your own pace. Solace says, "They will go through an overview of the different sectors of animal agriculture, hot topics, and emerging issues, how to address contentious issues, and interacting with the general public."

Farmers, ranchers, practicing veterinarians, and industry professionals who want to make a difference in public understanding and perception of animal agriculture are encouraged to indicate their interest in enrolling in the program. The ideal participant has already demonstrated their commitment to engaging in relevant issues and is ready to take their efforts to the next level. For more information on the program and participant guidelines, visit https://animalagalliance.org/initiatives/animal-ag-allies/.

The deadline to indicate your interest in enrolling in the next round of the program is August 7. Interested individuals are encouraged to complete the program interest form available at https://animalagalliance.org/initiatives/animal-ag-allies/.
