Thank you @followDiamondV, @MidwestDairy, @SmithfieldFoods, and @TysonFoods for being Gold sponsors of our 2021 Virtual Summit! #AAA21
Great panel on what we’ve seen and what we can expect with the new administration and state legislation featuring Christian Richter of The Policy Group and Elizabeth Rumley of @nataglaw! Thanks again @NPPC for your support!! #AAA21
When it comes to proposed measures and ballot initiatives, it matters what other states are doing. you can no longer excuse “oh it’s just California” for example, because it’s really a stepping stone and has secondary impacts on Ag in ALL states #AAA21

The first supportive court decision or passage of legislation on a certain issue makes it easier to receive the same response in future cases or passage in other states, according to Elizabeth Rumley of @nataglaw. #AAA21
Ballot initiatives mandating practices in animal agriculture are frequently used as an incremental first-step to proposing stricter legislation or initiatives that could more easily move to other states. #AAA21
Looking for legislation and initiatives affecting animal agriculture in your state? Check out our legislation map:…. #AAA21
Ballot initiatives, including CO's PAUSE Act (now named Wilbur's Law), would prohibit several current practices being used to decrease the environmental footprint of animal agriculture. #AAA21
Some state level measures, including CA Prop 12, are having impacts on other states as they provide barriers to what can be bought and sold in the state. Courts are discussing the legality of the measure because of its overreach. #AAA21
Really pragmatic breakdown from this panel on what is ACTUALLY happening in DC agriculture and environmental policy. (Versus what makes headlines and appears on this awesome/awful platform called Twitter.) Opportunities abound for ag! #AAA21…

According to Elizabeth Rumley of @nataglaw, key issues at the state level include: - farm animal housing - processing - right-to-farm - ballot proposals #AAA21
US EPA are targeting power and auto sectors for climate regulations. Animal ag is not their primary focus at the moment but will be a part of future discussions. #AAA21

the best support you can have for Ag is producer-led participation in working with the administration on climate/environmental issues requires producers to roll up sleeves and get involved - regardless which party is in office #AAA21

Different approaches are being taken by Members of Congress in proposed climate legislation: some are developing bipartisan bills and others are looking to make aggressive changes under the current administration. #AAA21
Farmer-led, voluntary environmental solutions are going to be paramount in climate legislation, according to Christian Richter of The Policy Group. #AAA21
It's expected that @USDA will receive and put more funding toward climate initiatives over the next 4 years. The department has been very active in putting agriculture at the center of climate discussions under @SecVilsack so far. #AAA21
In the Obama Administration, there were 5 staff members with "climate" in their title. Under the Biden Administration, there are now 9, highlighting how important climate discussions are to the current administration. #AAA21

Animal agriculture has a good story to tell and is telling it proactively enough to be in a good position for environmental policy discussions, according to Christian Richter of The Policy Group. #AAA21
Activist developed ballot initiatives at the state level are a growing issue for animal agriculture as the initiatives lack a foundation in science and prey on public emotion. #AAA21
According to Nick Giordano of @NPPC, federal issues of particular importance to animal agriculture include: 🧑 ag labor 🌎 food system sustainability 🤝 tra#AAA21A21
According to polls, the majority of #AAA21 attendees are very or somewhat concerned about policies being considered at the state and federal levels of government.

Great panel with @EmmaAndrew3 of @AmericanDairyNE, @TeuberMoore of @FarmBureau, and @SCFair sharing ways to engage stakeholders and influencers virtually! #AAA21
Authenticity goes much farther than trying to make things perfect. @EmmaAndrew3 @AmericanDairyNE #AAA21
When hosting virtual events it's important to keep your audience engaged. #AAA21
My students love this because they got to experience the farm without the smell. - Teacher reflection on @AmericanDairyNE virtual farm tours @EmmaAndrew3 #AAA21
Anything digital/virtual must still be authentic and genuine. People connect with what’s real, not over-polished. #AAA21

Authentic, genuine and compelling content helped @TeuberMoore and @FarmBureau in developing #stillfarming #AAA21
When working with farmers and ranchers, it’s always great to give them guides to capturing media. Help them, help you create content. @EmmaAndrew3 #AAA21

.@EmmaAndrew3 says using virtual brings people together using portability, affordability, and accessibility. So true! I think the future will be hybrid. #AAA21

How do you still inspire people to come in person, but put enough virtually that you still draw some interest and are able to use it as a tool? @TeuberMoore @FarmBureau #AAA21
One of the things about virtual programming is it has a way of bringing people together, affordably and at a large scale. @EmmaAndrew3 @AmericanDairyNE #AAA21
#stillfarming was started in March 2020 by @FarmBureau during the #pandemic to let people know that there may have been disruptions in the supply chain but farmers are STILL FARMING. How uplifting and motivational! #aaa21

There's just a lot more collaboration overall I would say, that's one of the silver lining for us. @TeuberMoore @FarmBureau #AAA21
The point made just now in this session re something for kids where adults can get in on the info and action, too, is awesome. It's not about educating one age. It's a chance to connect with "kids" of all ages. Learning about farms is fun. It's cool. It's essential. #bravo #AAA21…

Change can be scary. It can also be frustrating and irritating, but it's nothing new and something that we all need to learn to adapt to. - Mike Loakimedes, @SCFair #AAA21
