National Grange: Food Symposium Survey

By National Grange View From The Hill (6/3/10)

  JUNE 7, 2010 --

The Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST), a nonprofit organization composed of scientific societies and many individual, student, company, nonprofit, and associate society members is coordinating a Food Animal Agriculture Symposium. "Sustaining Animal Agriculture: Balancing Bioethical, Economic and Social Issues," will be held June 8, 9, and 10 in Washington, DC.

They have contacted the National Grange, asking for our assistance explaining and distributing a survey requesting information that will be summarized and presented on the first day of this symposium. The purpose of the symposium is to explore the intended and unintended consequences of state ballot initiatives, and other legal mandates, regarding animal welfare issues. They will use the information you provide to evaluate how these mandates impact food animal producers of all sizes, their communities, animal welfare, the structure of agriculture, and our food security.

AST is using a survey system called Surveymonkey to solicit the information they would like to obtain for the symposium. Surveymonkey is easy to use and all information will be confidential. In no case will it be possible to identify a farm or stakeholder. Participation is strictly voluntary. However, your participation is greatly appreciated because it will allow a more accurate identification of the impact of intended and unintended consequences of various food animal production ballot, regulatory, and legislative initiatives in the United States.

To participate in the CAST survey and be part of this important symposium please go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2B2HKJ8, and provide your candid opinions on the topic of ballot initiatives and other legal mandates.
