We stand for a strong, united animal agriculture industry, producing food in a science-based, safe and humane manner. The concept of a national agriculture advisory council by HSUS, a group that does not support this concept, is incomprehensible and unnecessary. We believe HSUS has formed this council as another way to combat such issues nationwide, as Oklahoma’s SQ777, right to farm, and to steer public opinion away from animal agriculture. HSUS, and other anti-animal agriculture groups, to form a number of minority splinter groups, each clamoring against SQ777,in a vain attempt to make it sound like the majority supports them, when in reality the opposite is true.
AFR will serve as the title sponsor for the LEAD Golf Tournament on July 11th in Oklahoma City to support State Question 777: Oklahoma's Right to Farm.
