“Agriculturists – it’s time for use to stand up,” encourages Jasmine Dillon, a graduate student in animal breeding at Texas A&M University in a YouTube video.

She goes on to refute the notion — stirred up recently in the popular press — that agriculture, animal science and horticulture are useless degrees.

“...if that were true, then could you tell me please how it is possible for you to roll out of your silk sheets, brush your teeth with toothpaste made from cotton seed, eat your corn pops breakfast cereal and drink your 2 percent milk,” Dillon says.

A group of Texas A&M agricultural students released the video to reconnect American society to the world of agriculture.

To access the video, go to YouTube and type in “Farmers fight – stand up.”
