How to lose the argument on animal welfare…Reasons 10-8

I got this list from http://www.feedstuffsfoodlink.com/ - these are the blunt truths about advocacy and if you care about our industry (if you follow my blog, that's probably a yes) then you'll read, retain and remedy them.   I'll be posting the next 3-4 reasons in a few days and work my way to number 1.

10. Not working hard enough to build coalitions that include the public (consumers), Most of our coalition efforts are focused on bringing agricultural groups together.There aren’t enough of us, and we don’t represent enough votes.

9. Assuming that because someone disagrees with you they are stupid, evil or both. Good people can look at the same issue differently.

8. Being reactive rather than proactive. - This one is repeated time and time again - it's why I started my blog

I hope you all enjoy these and will put them to good use - look for the next 3 or 4 in a few days

Until next time,
