Hungry for Truth to Host Sessions at Ag PhD Field Day

Learn tips to positively engage with consumers on top agricultural issues at two Ag PhD Field Day sessions hosted by Hungry for Truth and the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council (SDSRPC). The sessions will take place at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 27, 2017, at the Ag PhD Field Day near Baltic, South Dakota.

Session 1
Panel Discussion: A Conversation About Farming and Food Safety 
Morton Center Building, 9-10 a.m.
Hosted by a South Dakota farmer, this panel will feature a group of moms, business owners and influencers in the Sioux Falls community. We’ll learn how they navigate today’s grocery store aisles, food labels and online information to choose which foods are safe and nutritious to feed their families. We’ll explore topics such as food labels, food safety, GMOs, pesticides and sustainability. This interactive discussion offers audience members the opportunity to ask panelists how they make decisions throughout the discussion.

Session 2 
How to Have Effective Conversations With Consumers 
Monsanto Speaker Tent, 2-2:40 p.m.
This session will explore the ways farmers can have more effective conversations with consumers online and in person. Featuring two South Dakota farmers and nationally recognized blogger “The Farm Babe,” this presentation shares valuable tips and resources for connecting with consumers about how their food is grown and raised.

Ag PhD is a free event but pre-registration is appreciated. Register online today and plan to join us for these informational sessions.
