Animal rights activists are trying to stop rodeos from “abusing” animals, but they don’t know the extensive care that the animals are given. Rodeos have been around for a long time. After cattlemen rounded up their livestock they would all gather together once or twice a year to have a “Rodeo”. It was just a fun get together once the big job of gathering stock was over with. It eventually ended up being a sport that is popular everywhere.
Right from the very beginning, Ostrander employs the persuasive mode of ethos, in which she introduces Salatin by showcasing how he is relevant and a voice of authority as a sustainable farmer. After giving him a thorough introduction through describing his farm, Polyface and his personality, as well as how he rose to fame through the film Food, Inc. and The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan, she states, "Who better to articulate an ethic of how, when, and whether we should raise and eat our fellow animals?" It is also in the introduction where Ostrander utilizes most of the pathos portion, appealing to the reader's emotions by describing Salatin in quite an honest way, even referring to
So God Made a Farmer Based on this advertisement, the farmer is someone who can do all of these things and still manage to take care of his or her family while catering the nation with food and livestock. Dodge uses this advertisement to confederate the “mighty farmer,” who people rely on, with their mighty Dodge Ram, which is reliable for heavy farming obligations (So God Made a Farmer, 2013). The advertisement uses certain photographs, some that actually feature a Dodge Ram truck being used on the farm, to depict the daily life of a farmer. These photographs give us the effect that the Dodge Ram is created to be strong enough to “clear trees and heave bails”, and still provide a gentle enough ride to transport animals (So God Made a Farmer, 2013). The truck must furnish what the farmer needs to keep up with his or her schedule and attainment of his or her intention.
The Iowa State Fair is the most influential events throughout the state of Iowa during the month of August. This is a place where one can go to experience shows, art, food, and see livestock from all around the country. Most people however, go to this fair simply to have fun. On my visit to the Iowa State Fair in the previous summer, tasting all of the different foods, quality of the rides and the positive attitude from the carnival workers highly encourages me to come back year after year. Depending on what fair you attend, food quality varies from food stand to food stand.
We volunteer to help set up whenever there is a fair in Rockford. We helped organize the parking lots when the LPGA was in town. We visit the elementary schools in the area to be positive role models for the children. As a group of teenage boys, our team has an atmosphere that is very joking and fun; not leaving much room for serious talks if a teammate is going through a tough time. To make up for
12,000 low-income students in Tarrant County will receive free school supplies, health checkup among other services from the Back to School Roundup organization on August 18, 2016.

All the time I hear people say they want to be a veterinarian! “OSU is ranked one of the best veterinarian colleges in the world.” (Oklahoma State University Information). “OSU’s livestock judging team was Reserve at the National Western Stock Show in 2014.” (Animal Science). “At Oklahoma State University Freshmen have to live in dorms, on campus.” (Oklahoma State University). “The department of animal science sponsors five different judging teams.” (Animal Science).
In order to accomplish this mission PETA euthanizes innocent animals. Radke also states, “While ranchers tend to their stock… PETA employees are busy euthanizing healthy animals.” In agriculture, farmers and ranchers raise livestock, such as pigs and cows, and they could also own dogs and horses as pets. Agriculture is defined as the practice of cultivating plants and heading animals for food, fiber, and other products (Jokisch). If the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals were to accomplish their mission it would not only affect the raising of livestock, but the feces of these animals is also a rich source of nutrients for the production of their crops. Also, it will affect these farmers’ and ranchers’ source of
Reseda Park, just down the street from CSUN, is a fairly large park with a lake at its center and with its grass and trees green year long. Reseda was once a sheep farm many years ago and later became a “prominent lettuce-growing region” (Community Profile). The park on Friday nights has different events like kids softball or basketball games and these programs are “to take care of our kids” (Community Profile). If you grew up in the San Fernando Valley you at some point have been to this lovely place. I personally grew up feeding the animals there.
), cars ( Hot Wheels, model cars, matchbox, etc. ), animals ( stuffed animals, Beanie Babies, Breyer, etc.) and many other categories. Anyways, you bring the display into the hobby barn at the HOI Fair, you get to set it up and do whatever you would like to it. Then the next day the HOI Fair opens to the public.
