Oprah to Discuss Food Animals

On Tuesday, October 14, The Oprah Winfrey Show will be discussing how animals are raised on farms. The show is called "How We Treat the Animals We Eat." On Oprah's website, it says the show will cover what "cage-free" and "range-free" really means.

If you go to the message board on the Oprah website, you can see first hand some of the comments from viewers about what they hope to see on the show. One viewer commented the following: "I cannot tell you how grateful I am that the Oprah show is covering this! Like the puppy mill show, this will CHANGE THE WAY WE TREAT ANIMALS! There are numerous atrocities happening in factory farms all over the world right this minute and it's time we stand up for the animals that cannot speak for themselves and change the way business is done!!"
American farmers and ranchers care about their animals and work hard to produce a safe and abundant supply of food for our country, and other countries. And we do this on fewer acres than ever before.

Tune in to Oprah on Tuesday, Oct. 14 and see what she has to say about how we care for the animals we raise. Also, contact the Oprah Show and let them know how we do care for our animals. If the message boards are any indication to what her show will be about, it's going to be up to the farmers and ranchers in this country to tell the accurate version of our story!

Thanks Troy and Chris for bringing this to light. We need to let people know the truth. I am fearful this show will not "show the truth." We'll see.
