Farmers Paying It Forward with Pizza

The farming community is rallying together to thank Domino’s Pizza shareholders for saying “no” to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

Using blogs, Facebook and Twitter, a group of agriculturalists is encouraging everyone to order Domino’s Pizza this weekend (May 18-20) as a way to thank the company for standing with America’s farmers. 

In April, Domino’s shareholders rejected a resolution proposed by HSUS to require its pork suppliers to stop housing sows in gestation stalls.  A Domino’s spokesperson explained that the company relies on animal experts to determine the best way to raise an animal that’s used for food.

The “Farmers Paying It Forward with Pizza” campaign was the brainchild of Clarence, Missouri pork producer and ag blogger Chris Chinn.  Brownfield’s Tom Steever visited with Chinn about the pizza plan.

Feed salesman Mike Davelaar of Brandon, South Dakota, who blogs on The Truth About Agriculture web site, is also working to spread the word.   Brownfield’s Ken Anderson talked to Davelaar about it.
