New Member Profile: Karly Frederick

Food For Thought has been blessed to grow in membership throughout the past year. Keep an eye out over the next few months for new member profiles and get to know our new friends! Enjoy this post by new member, Karly Frederick:

"Hi - my name is Karly Frederick and I am from Alden, KS. I am a K-State student majoring in Agricultural Business with a Leadership minor.

I grew up on the harvest trail during my summers with my family's custom cutting business. My family also farms and has a cattle operation I love to help out on. My favorite things are green combines, harvest moons in Kansas, and spending time in the wheat field with my family.

I love all things agricultural and helping others learn more about agriculture. I look forward to being involved in the Food For Thought organization to help communicate to others how there food gets to the table. I hope to use skills like this in my future and be an advocate for agriculture."

Dairy Carrie vs. HSUS

Aaaaand we're back - after a brief hiatus from the blog we're back in full force!

Donations to HSUS
Picture from
As a vet student, and someone who cares a ridiculous amount about the well-being of animals, I am constantly outraged by the Humane Society of the United States misleading Americans.  Let's get one thing straight, when you donate to HSUS you are in no way benefiting your local animal shelter and helping animals in need - you're contributing to a power (and money) hungry organization that lobbies against agriculture.

Recently, Wayne Pacelle, the President and CEO of HSUS, wrote an open letter to agriculture journalists and leaders.  This letter is just as misleading as the sappy commercials I see on TV.  Blogger, Dairy Carrie, has such a phenomenal response to this - I had to share.  Enjoy!
