As promised, here is the next segment of my list. You have all probably visited the website and looked at the entire list, however for those of you waiting on the edge of your seats for my next post (haha) here they are:
How to lose the argument on animal welfare…Top 10 reasons
D. A. Daley, PhD – CSU, Chico
7. Assuming that the lunatic fringe is the general public. We spend way to much time focusing on lunatics and not working with the public.
6. Not being willing to listen because we are so busy responding.
5. Attacking everyone who disagrees with you in a negative, critical manner. We get angry very easily and that generally means we aren’t comfortable with what we are doing, so we have to defend at the top of our lungs.
4. Assuming we can’t do better at animal welfare. Agriculture is about evolving practices. Why can’t we continue to improve a system that is already good but will continue to change?
Take these precautions to heart - we must listen to challengers, be willing to change for the better and accept people for their thoughts and ideas.
On Thursday, I'll have the top 3 reasons and also two bonus reasons! Get excited
Until next time,
