Being an AGvocate is not an easy job, but it sure is an important one.
That’s why we’re always looking for creative ways to share our message with a general public that might not have a strong-rooted understanding of agriculture. Sometimes, that even means developing innovative ways to reach out to key decision makers in Washington DC.
This video, describing some of the frightening details of WOTUS (Waters Of The United States), came out this week and is taking the social media scene by storm. At the time of this writing, it has been viewed 25,000 times in a matter of days. That is a pretty good indicator of a successful video!
The Clean Water Act contains masked verbiage that promotes regulations of every area where water can stand – including the mud puddles your kids and grandkids splash in every April.
I don’t know about you,
but I’m not ready for the government
to play in our puddles.
An interesting fact: This video was filmed in Delaware County, IN – right here in our trade territory – by farmers who understand the implications of a WOTUS ruling. Many thanks to these farmers and the Delaware County Farm Bureau for their work.
We invite you to share this message far and wide.
