Let Freedom Ring

Jul 12, 2011

Let Freedom Ring is an appropriate theme for the 2011 National Jr. Angus Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Monday was the official start to a week full of competition, fun, and life lessons for Angus juniors from across the United States and one exhibitor from Canada. The Pennsylvania Jr. Association has welcomed the visitors with open arms and great hospitality.

As I and my fellow Illinois Advisor, proudly stood with our great group of Illinois Juniors during the Parade of the States, it hit me “Yes, Let Freedom Ring” for the next generation of Angus leaders. Animal Activists groups like the Humane Society of US (HSUS) would prefer the next generation of animal agriculture producers did not emerge.

“My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture."
---JP Goodwin, employed at the Humane Society of the US, formerly at Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade, as quoted on AR-Views, an animal rights Internet discussion group.
 
 “As a beef producer, it so great to see so many young juniors in this arena” said Matt Meals, Pennsylvania’s Deputy Secretary for Agriculture and Consumer Protection  in his welcomed speech.
In one simple but important statement Meals, summarized the reason families take a week of vacation to attend the National Junior Angus Show. These same young faces eager to start the week is the future of the beef industry and should have the freedom to raise livestock. They are and will be raising the beef we consume, adding ZIP (Zinc, Iron, and Protein) to our diet. It is my generation that should ensure the CHOICE to be beef producers is our children’s decision.
