New America’s Pig Farmer of the Year Named

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News New America’s Pig Farmer of the Year Named 2016-americas-pig-farmer-namedA South Dakota pig farmer is the new title holder for America’s Pig Farmer of the Year, edging 3 other finalists including Maria Mauer of Greensburg, Indiana. Brad Greenway succeeds Indiana’s Keith Schoettmer, who won last year in the first year of the program. The Pork Checkoff award recognizes a pig farmer who excels at raising pigs using the We Care ethical principles and connects with consumers about pork production. Greenway hopes to share his story of what he does on the farm with consumers.“When I filled out the application and decided to do this, I went through the process and really enjoyed that. The other three finalists, we got to be good friends and I was honored to even get that far. To be named the winner I truly am honored and I want to try to do my best to represent all pig farmers on what we do every day, and I hope I can answer questions and have a conversation with consumers on their interests.”Greenway says his family has been very supportive to him and also does a great job of advocating for the pork industry.Finalist Mauer from Decatur County credited the inaugural program and Schoettmer himself for reaching over 31 million consumers with a positive message last year. She has appreciated the chance to share how she promotes animal well-being.“If we can’t treat animals right we can hardly expect to treat each other right, and it’s all got to start somewhere. On our farm we take exceptionally good care of our animals, especially our sows. We like our sows to stay in the herd a long time so it’s very important that we give her the very best care so that she can last several years. We do everything we possibly can to give her everything she needs to be comfortable and healthy, and have a nice long life.”Greenway was chosen as the Pig Farmer of the Year after achieving the highest score from a third-party judging panel and online voting. An audit of on-farm practices and a series of written and oral interviews was also part of the process.To learn more about Greenway’s farm and the America’s Pig Farmer of the Year Award, visit www.americaspigfarmer.com.Producers can contact the Pork Checkoff Service Center at www.Pork.org or call 800-456-PORK.

My Cyber-friends have manners too

first_imgMy mother says the scariest thing about Facebook is that there are no rules. How can I distinguish love interests from professional contacts when everyone is just a ‘friend,’ she worries.    How wrong she is.   Last week, five friends and I discussed Facebook etiquette. Without much effort, we agreed on several key patterns in our online behavior, an unwritten rulebook:   Friendly hellos and plans to meet for coffee merit a wall post, which can be seen by anyone. Date invites or secret gossip go by Facebook message (like a private email, but sent over Facebook’s server). Aimless chatter occurs over AOL Instant Messenger. For job interviews or chats with Mom, there is Skype’s online phone service. Email is for sending resumes and contacting professors.   The hierarchy is strict. Mixing up the categories—asking someone out on their wall, for example, or Skype-ing just to make lunch plans—is social suicide.   My younger sister, a high-school sophomore, has an equally strong online code. Ever since my mother got a Facebook profile, my sister has busily mocked her blundering misuse of the site. ‘You can’t call me by baby names on my wall, ALL my friends will see that!’   But my sister’s Facebook etiquette is not the same as mine. For my sister, regulation is about hiding more formal contact (with family, adults and teachers) from her casual friends, so they don’t see her as un-cool. For my friends and I, regulation is about concealing casual content, relationships and college life from potential employers or professors. Some of my friends, for example, have taken to editing their Facebook pages during internship-application-season in case employers are online.   Every media revolution—from the first papers to radio and telegraph to TV—has seen old rulebooks thrown out. Skeptics, like my mother, inevitably panic, but eventually, new rules develop. Wikipedia has already established its own system of authority, freezing pages when content becomes unreliable or hostile.   With Facebook now open to everyone, the rules will continue to change. The question is how. As they join social networks, will an older generation of CEO’s and parents adopt social manners from the young?  Or, as the first group of users grows up, will Facebook itself grow more formal?last_img read more
