Stand Up For Agriculture!

Texas A&M student Jasmine Dillon offers some food for thought in an articulate explanation of agriculture and how it impacts our daily lives. Created in response to a Yahoo! report that said agricultural careers such as animal science and horticulture are useless, Dillon gives a no-nonsense report of how farmers and ranchers are more than cowboys in the wild West; they are scientists, nutritionists and engineers -- working to increase food production and improve water quality around the world.

Farmers Fight is a student-led initiative to reconnect American society to the world of agriculture. Beginning with university students, Farmers Fight encourages consumers to ask where their food comes from, and give students, faculty, public officials, and farmers and ranchers an opportunity to become "agvocates" for the agriculture community.
