Alltech held a "Large Herd" meeting of many of the world’s largest dairies and feedlots at its European BioScience Centre in Ireland this week as part of the Global 500 event. Large-scale operations from China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Middle East, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and North America were invited to take part in this unique initiative.
Farmers are in search of new ways to reach out and engage with others in and out of the agriculture community. There are opportunities for those in search of ways to tell their story, but not everyone is sure of where to start. Alltech wants to give one farmer going to the 2013 National Agvocacy 2.0 Conference the tools to learn how to tell his or her story by providing a scholarship at the conclusion of the conference.
Why would you like to receive Agvocacy 2.0 training? What do you see as the future of social media in agriculture?
I want to do more. My full time work is with an ad agency so I spend a lot of time helping other businesses market themselves. As a result, I find I neglect my own farm operation. At the same time, I am constantly being asked by my friends and peers "How can I do more?" A hands-on training would help me with my confidence and be able to communicate practical, actionable things that I and others can do.
