Agriculture issues?
« on: January 05, 2016, 06:54:38 PM »
My FFA chapter is hoping to have an ag issues team this year and we are looking for a topic. We have thought about antibiotics, GMO's, hormones, etc. If anyone has any ideas on agriculture issues that could be debated(have a pro and con side) it would be greatly appreciated!

I agree with the genetic defects
Not just in show cattle though I'm sure it can be debated with kther show stock too
And I want to add line breeding

The red river land dispute along the red river in Texas and Oklahoma and between land owners and the bureau of land management would be a great and timely topic.  There is a great deal of information about it online.  Basically the federal got is claiming land along the river from private property owners.  It's not right and more people need to know about.  Good luck.....
