Much of the success and rapid growth of the World Farm Animals Day observance over the past 20 years has been due to the generous support by the national and local media. Radio and television networks have conducted interviews with celebrity members of WFAD’s National Council like Casey Kasem, Mary Tyler Moore, Ed Asner, James Cromwell, Jennie Garth, and Bill Maher. Local media have reported extensively on community events. Each year, nearly a hundred newspapers have carried letters to the editor.
Some likely topics for interviews and feature articles include:
Are there any regulations protecting farmed animals in the US?
Why does the European Union treat farmed animals so much better than the US?
What are consumers’ attitudes towards the treatment of farm animals?
How safe is our meat supply and how is it affected by the threat of bioterrorism?
Why is the meat industry luring illegal aliens?
Why is the meat industry exporting factory farms to developing countries?
What are the World Farm Animals Day events in my community?
