We are uniquely positioned to connect influential consumers and food producers in conversation. Through programming like Digital Voices, Faces of Farming & Ranching, and Discovery Education we seek to educate key audiences about how food is grown and raised by sharing the stories of real food producers. In addition to their other responsibilities, our program participants are also contributors to our blog. Get to know our programming and participants, below.
This August 29th and 31st, Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council (MSR&PC) is partnering with U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) to invite high school educators in both Minneapolis and Sacramento to embark on a farm tour in addition to a tour of an agricultural facility. Teachers will have the opportunity to speak directly with a farmer, ask questions and learn more about our new agricultural curriculum available to high school educators.
Additionally, each attendee will receive a brand-new iPod touch and virtual reality headset. There is no cost for participation and the curriculum tools are free.

As part of our ongoing efforts to inform and educate consumers about how food is grown and raised, USFRA is pleased to announce our new Digital Voices Council! The Council members are sponsored by USFRA and have a breadth of experience and knowledge surrounding today’s agricultural practices and provide additional resources to further the dialogue between farmers, ranchers and consumers.
