"Farm Animal Care: Myths vs. Facts" will be the 2009 topic of the annual Farm-City Week Symposium during National Farm-City Week, celebrated Nov. 20 to 26, ending on Thanksgiving Day.
In addition, the National Farm-City Council and its state organizations will work to communicate to urban audiences the challenges facing producers of America's meat supply.
These issues will be discussed at this year's Farm-City Week Symposium, which will be held in Indianapolis at the Westin Hotel on Nov. 19. The public is invited to attend.
"Across the country, we're seeing livestock producers facing new challenges," says Al Pell, chairman of the National Farm-City Council. "Oftentimes, these come from well-intentioned citizens in urban areas who don't know what a good job producers are doing to practice caring and ethical animal husbandry. Our goal is to help raise this issue and help educate those in cities and towns who are beginning to have an impact on livestock operations through legislation and regulation."
