Collegiate students offer truth about food

Knowing what’s true and what’s not is important. NDFB Collegiate students are making sure the public has a chance to hear the truth about agriculture. Collegiate Farm Bureau groups at Dickinson State University and North Dakota State University have asked Dr. Gary Sides to speak about Modern Agriculture in a Facebook Culture, and the presentations will be open to the public.

Dr. Sides will speak in Fargo on November 19 at 7:00 p.m. in Loftsgard Hall #114 at NDSU and in Dickinson on November 20 at 7:00 p.m. in Murphy Hall at DSU.

“The students enjoyed Dr. Sides when he was at the NDFB Farm and Ranch Conference,” said Haley Robison, NDFB Southwest Field Representative. “The collegiate groups thought he would be a great speaker for students on campus and decided to open it up to the public.”

In today’s world, it is confusing to know what is healthy and what is not. Dr. Sides will key in on the science behind your food and health.

“The students strive to do at least one activity per semester to help address and inform the public about issues in agriculture,” said Robison. “A lot of people are misinformed when it comes to modern agriculture and where their food comes from, so the collegiate groups decided this would be a great topic of discussion.”

College students with an interest in agriculture are aware of the importance to share the authenticity of our food.

“The students are working their way into the industry, and we know it is our job to make sure the consumer feels safe and knowledgeable when shopping for food," said Alisha Nord, NDFB Southeast Field Representative.

The NDSU Saddle and Sirloin club are co-sponsoring the event in Fargo.
