Feed Yard Foodie: A Cover Girl?

I have to admit that this week has been a little bit stressful for me—I am not used to following and researching a “hot topic” in social media in addition to all of the other things that I do!  Taking care of my animals is a much quieter experience…

The shining light to my week actually had nothing to do with the hot topic of Lean Finely Textured Beef…Wednesday night when I was working on my post that featured Dr. Cross, I got an email with the good news—I made the front page of the April issue of American Cattlemen magazine!  I can honestly say that I never dreamed that I would ever be a Cover Girl!

Feed Yard Foodie also hit a milestone this week as we soared past more than 40,000 all time views.  Woo Hoo!  Thanks to all of you for your loyalty and support!

    You own that issue! The cover + 5 1/2 pages of edit! A two page spread?! A picture of you lurking in the contents section. Dang.

    As a former magazine guy, that’s pretty good in 38 page/4 page cover book. You really must have impressed them. I look forward to reading the article.

    We need to get you on Fox with Hannity and whats-his-face. Then, unleash you on the militaristic vegans hanging out at CNN and Public Radio. You’d just need to mail them a copy of the magazine with a sticky note on it saying, “I support beef and the beef industry. I’m available to answer the public’s questions.”

    Great job, Anne.

  8. Came by to see what Feed Yard Foodie is all about and I love it! Congratulations on your cover, Anne, and on creating a beautiful life. Wonderful!

  9. Thank you to everyone for the great words of support. The magazine sent me LOTS of copies of the April issue so if anyone has a desire to see it in print just let me know! My two younger girls took copies today to school—all excited to show everyone. My oldest, typical of a middle school student, looked at the magazine and asked in her wonderful smarty way, “why can’t I come from a normal family who doesn’t have their Christmas card picture on the cover of a magazine?”. To this I replied, “get used to it—you are stuck with us!” I did notice that she took the time to read the article and actually smiled a time or two while reading it…

    Hi F Foodie, I have ideas I’d like to bounce off of you because from what I can read you are quite intelligent. I own a feedlot west of Scottsbluff and will be making a sojourn there in Aug, Sep and Oct. Is there a place or a time that would work for you that we could me to discuss centered around 1) How producers can better market beef to land more revenue in their pocket v processors and 2) Can we use social media to get a far reaching group of producers to balk at selling when fair price for cattle is less than current market price? Can we as national producers refuse to sell for a day or two to drive up demand and subsequently the price?

    I love your site and would like to talk. My name is Michael Grasmick. My corporation is Grasmick Farming Company, Inc. My email is megrasm@gmail.com and my cell is 608-347-2767.

    I look forward to talking to you.
