Marketing

Junior:
1 to 2 minute presentation on the following scenario: What are the benefits of beef vs. chicken.
Intermediate:
2 to 3 minute presentation on the following scenario: Within the cattle industry, what is the importance of purebred vs. commercial cattle. Consider bloodlines, genetics, etc.
Senior:
Members may choose one of the following scenarios to make a 3 minute presentation:
1. Carbon. Cows. Cars.
When you have encountered an individual- who doesn’t understand the agricultural beef industry or people’s passion to provide the best product we can- what would you say to get them to understand & respect the farming/ranching business? Perhaps the many positives instead of the negatives this individual has chosen to believe.
2. Radical Animal Activists
Encounter with a radical individual at a major livestock show- a person is very nasty with the fact you have livestock on display & is causing a scene. How would you go about deflecting & or dealing with someone that thinks it is cruel?
Or:
When purchasing dairy products or meat counter items at a grocery store & you encounter a small group of people disrupting the area with miss truths about the “intensive factory farming”. What would you do??
