Today I am headed to Atlanta, GA for the American Farm Bureau Annual Meeting along with many other farmers and ranchers throughout the USA. On two of my flights to Atlanta I was given the privilege of being upgraded to First Class by United Airlines.
As I sit in First Class I cannot help to compare the service I received to the care my family provides to the cows on our dairy. The seats in first class are roomy and comfortable just like the individual frequently groomed beds our cows have lie down in. The flight attendant addressed any needs and concerns we had and was quick to bring us refreshments or food. Our cows also have full access to a healthy nutritious diet, however unlike the food on the airplane their diet is formulated just for them by a nutritionist.
I am extremely excited to meet with other Farm Bureau members to help craft the policy that will direct the nation’s largest farmer member organization in the coming years. In addition to creating policies at the AFBF Annual Meeting I have been invited to be a guest blogger along with other farmers. We will be crafting our firsthand accounts of the speeches and various events going on in Atlanta during the meeting and co-located events like the AgConnect Trade Show.
