On this week’s AnimalAgCast, we hear from Ryan Goodman, a Business Development Manager for AgriClear, as well as a prominent social media influencer and the producer of Agriculture Proud, a popular agricultural advocacy blog. Ryan, along with several other members of Team Beef’s Montana Running Ranchers, recently completed Reebok’s Ragnar Hawaii, a 200 mile relay race through the mountains of Hawaii.
The Running Ranchers excelled in this year’s competition, completing the race in just over 30 hours to finish in 16th overall. The experience also brought Team Beef in contact with a diverse group of fitness enthusiasts, including a variety of runners who were incredibly interested in learning more about beef production and where their food comes from. The team engaged in several meaningful, positive conversations about beef production during their participation in the relay.
“I think it’s very critical that agriculture industry professionals be involved in conversations within the fitness community if we have that mutual interest,” he said during the program. “These are folks that are interested in living a healthy lifestyle, and they’re looking at food as the fuel for their bodies, so they can be very critical of these issues, and we need to be out there and be advocates for our own healthy lifestyles.”
