I wonder when we (farmers and ranchers) will be invited to speak?

The answer is not likely.

Bob Barker has donated $1 million to Drury University to fund the Drury University on Animal Rights. I think this is scary. We now have courses that are preaching HSUS's agenda.

According to Drury University's newspaper, The Mirror, the goal of the course is to raise moral consciousness about the most current conditions and uses of nonhuman animals and therein the ethical dimension of relationships between nonhuman animals and human beings.

Here's the problem they are not nonhuman animals - they are animals. I love, respect and care for all my animals (primarily cattle) at the highest level possible, but at the end of the day they are cows and they can't reciprocate any of those feelings or actions. We need to stop humanizing nonhuman objects.

You can read the rest of the article here. I just wonder when we are ever going to have the course - Non-agriculture kids, come out to the farm and learn what agriculture is really about.

Side note: Drury University is a private, liberal arts college in Springfield, MO. The university enrolls about 1,550 undergrads, more than 2,000 adult part-time undergrads and around 400 graduate students in six master's programs. 


  1. Bob Barker is coming to Edmonton to try and have Lucy the Elephant moved (after 36 years) to a warmer climate, so she doesn't suffer so much.

  2. Too many people confuse livestock with pets. Until that changes, there's more to come. BB why couldn't you stick with pricing games?


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
