The annual Farm Food Tour continues to see positive changes in consumer opinions regarding farming practices in America.
The three-day tour hosted ten bloggers and dietitians, and included stops at Elanco Animal Health, Monsanto’s research facility and Central Missouri Meat and Sausage. Topics covered included antibiotic and hormone use in food animals, GMOs, bee health and meat processing.
Kansas pig farmer Emily Roush of R Family Farms also attended the tour and sat on a farmer panel at Monsanto to talk about modern pig farming.
Attendees were given surveys before and after the tour to determine how informed they are on these topics and gauge their change in attitude.
The FFT is sponsored by The Kansas Soybean Commission, Kansas Farm Bureau and KPA.
