I have decided to champion a new cause.
There are a lot of people out there that are confused about dairy products. So, I am going to help by displaying some dairy free products that you can use.
We all know that dairy was never intended to be consumed by humans. I mean after all, what kind of idiot decided for the first time to pull on a cow’s teat and then have the nerve to drink it?
I mean it has to be bad, right. That poor cow shouldn’t be relieved of her milk and then have the milk put to good use as a nutritious drink. Bull ____.
We must protect that cow and do our best to help consumers choose only products that don’t have milk.
We will free all the dairy cows to go out into nature the way God intended them. I could use some help here – gotta load them up and find a place to free them. I’m thinking we should start in Los Angeles since there are so many cow lovers there.
Clarity is what the consumers need to be able to stop the horrendous use of quality food products.
I have the solution!
I will start small by voicing the false dangers of consuming milk there by starting the confusion. I can feed the movement by adding these stickers to products that might confuse consumers, that way they can make an informed choice.
Oh, and to help inform them I need to get a high-profile celebrity – someone who has never been on a farm, someone who hates milk, someone who wants a just cause to parade. And, we’ll be sure to pay them a lot of money to have them join us. Just have to figure out how to make some money to pay them, but I got an idea brewing.
I think I should be extremely clear to the consumers so they will make the best no-dairy choice. I will add these stickers to EVERYTHING that isn’t dairy. I mean they should know kitty litter has no dairy, hair spray has no dairy, eggs have no dairy and 44 inch televisions are dairy free. Let’s give the consumers many options of spending their money on dairy free items.
We will become so popular companies will be lining up to get permission to use our logo. And we will gladly supply it for $$$ - lots of $$$$. (There you go - celebrity endorsement on the way.) You know if we can get the right companies to join us we can become rich! What mother wouldn’t choose the no-dairy diaper for their child when looking at a row of diapers and only one has the no-dairy seal?
Our no-dairy seal will become known far and wide and we will spread the BS of no-dairy items. Just think we don’t need to stop in the food aisles. We can spread to clothing, cleaning supplies, hardware and more!
Won’t you please join me?
Get in on the bottom floor of deception.
We can join and bring about more fear and trepidation for consumers. Oh, wait a minute, you might be a consumer. I was thinking I was speaking to fellow farmers. You know those of us who are trying to pull the BS wool over your eyes.
Well, it matters not.
Coming soon – No-Dairy Deception campaign. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
*Read with tongue in cheek, with a sarcastic tone of voice and over the top enthusiasm.
I’ve never written a “Dear John” letter before. Never needed to. Until now. To you.
You cheated on me.
I’ve found someone better.
I doubt this letter will cause any tears but I do hope it pricks your conscious.
For several years, we’ve purchased feed from your company. I must say the people we have dealt with have been superb. Great and knowledgeable.
Your product has fed many of our cows successfully.
While I could complain of high prices I imagine you’re comparable.
So, why am I leaving?
Many farmers had a working relationship with you. We grow for you, we buy from you and support each other. Until this past spring, you turned your back on us and joined an organization that is not farmer friendly. An anti-GMO organization that I will not give space to in this letter.
I totally understand that you need to accommodate all types of customers. You had a non-GMO process in place that seemed to be doing the job just fine.
Then, you messed up.
I agree with Julie Gunlock in her commentary – The Unholy Alliance Between Big Biz and Big Alarmism when she wrote: Cargill, one of America's biggest food and agriculture companies, recently announced its partnership with the _________, an organization focused on misinforming consumers about GMO safety, and, as the organization's name implies, ridding the American marketplace of GMOs.
First, there are many who have confirmed that GMOs are safe for humans and animals. Such as the National Academy of Sciences, American Medical Association, World Health Organization and many more.
There are groups of people who want you to believe GMOs are unsafe. Why? Business reasons. And a whole lot of band wagon jumpers – “Wow, did you hear GMO’s will make you grow an extra leg? –We better jump on the anti-GMO band wagon then.”
The loudest voice is heard and right now the false, fake, fear promoting voice is prospering at our expense.
Do you think it’s a coincidence that on the board of this anti-GMO organization are people connected to Organic, Natural and Environmentalist businesses and groups?
Hmmmmm . . . if there are more and more people who are afraid of the safe GMO foods then there will be more to purchase their “super safe” food products. Funny howthat works.
But, I digress – you know all of that. I added that in hopes everyone who reads this will hear the truth.
So, back to you Cargill.
“Helping farmers prosper” is part of founder’s W.W.Cargill’s vision statement. Somehow siding with fear propagating, false teaching businesses that encourage consumers to purchase a selected type of food doesn’t line up with helping farmers prosper.
As I said before, the loudest voice is heard. This anti-GMO organization is a huge voice – like a Goliath.
Farmers need a David to go against Goliath.
You could have been our David. You could have brought truth to the marketplace for consumers.
Now the Goliath has more strength to frighten others to pick the more expensive, yet no difference in food value, item.
So, having written all of that, I’m choosing to hire a David as our feed company. We chose Farmer’s Co-op Elevator Co. in Hudsonville, over you and your weak backbone to stand up for farmers.
My hope is that enough farmers look for a David and we join forces to shine a light on the truth in agriculture.
So, this is farewell and good-bye. I’d wish you luck and success but then that would be a lie. I wish you would stand up straight and partner with those of us who are growing safe, affordable food for our families and the world.
