I’m often puzzled by the notion that livestock are abused in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
I know some of that sentiment is generated by images seen on television or the internet of animal mistreatment. Just to set the record straight, I think anyone who abuses livestock should be out of the business. I do not condone abuse of any animal for any reason. Neither do the other farmers and ranchers I know.
But I can tell you about the welfare of my livestock.

It’s that time of year—the time when the zucchini plants go WILD! Every winter, I dream of fresh zucchini—can’t wait to taste it, to savor it! And by mid-July or August, I’m so sick of it I can hardly stand the sight of them!

My mother, one of the world’s gifted peacemakers, often told me, “There are two sides to everything.” Bridging the gap between some anti-agriculture activists and farmers and ranchers is a pretty big challenge, but as Mom said, there are two sides. There are a lot of people out there who have not made their minds up about how we grow food here in the U.S. They understand they don’t have a lot of information, but they have legitimate concerns. Farmers and ranchers really want to talk to them—and we want to listen, too.

How many of you like potato salad? Well, at Texas Table Top, we love potato salad, but we can’t decide which one is best. With Labor Day weekend approaching, I asked several coworkers at Texas Farm Bureau to bring their favorite potato salad recipe. The response was great! Every person brought a completely different recipe. There was no way we could pick just one winner, so we decided to share them all. So for this week’s recipe, we’re having a Potato Salad Potluck.

I’m very, very excited because this is my first guest post for the Texas Farm Bureau! They have a brand new site, Texas Table Top, which celebrates all the great food, places and people that the Lone Star State has to offer.
