This Sunday,starting at 9 am Eastern time, the social networking site Twitter is going have more the feel of the barnyard rather than cyber space. The reason is that America's farmers and ranchers are getting together to educate consumer about pork production. Along with that, we will be dispelling the myths about the H1N1 virus and it's relationship to pork production.
You might remember that we did this a few weeks ago with #moo to highlight the struggles of the dairy industry. We had moo trending extremely high form many hours. It also gave many of us a chance to talk about agriculture and the beef industry in general. These are the types of opportunities that we must take advantage of in agriculture. I will guarantee you that many folks will have a much greater understanding about pork production after Sunday's event.
Please join us. If you don't have a twitter account already, just visit www.twitter.com and you will be up and running in no time. If you have any trouble, just send me a note and I can walk you through it. Just remember, when you send out a tweet this weekend to include #oink in it.
