The brothers of the Beta Nu (Texas A&M) chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho, an agriculturally-focused social/professional fraternity, started an Agricultural Advocacy committee in the fall of 2011 after realizing the need for greater pro-agriculture publicity around campus. Through educational events and media publicity, this committee works to promote a positive, educated understanding of American agriculture so that people may better understand just how vital modern agriculture is to our nation, our economy, and our way of life.
Thus an organization called Farmers Fight was formed! This agricultural advocacy day will be held on April 12, 2012 and is intended to highlight the advancements that different agricultural sectors have made in recent years, as well as to educate the public on the diversity of agriculture today. Our vision for Farmers Fight is that it will be so large and involve enough people that no student will be able to come to campus this day without knowing that an agricultural event is being held.
How can we not stand up for agriculture? It is what we eat, what we wear, and how we live.
It is time to join together and make our presence known!
Thanks & Gig’em!
