FFA Creed is not just for agricultural students but rather all Americans


The FFA Creed

I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds – achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years.

I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny.

I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil.

I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so–for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me.

I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.

The creed was written by E.M. Tiffany and adopted at the Third National FFA Convention. It was revised at the 38th and 63rd Conventions.

Column this week in High Plains Journal "America at a T"

 America at a T

There have been several situations recently that allow us to say we are at a crossroads in the future of farming. Folks, we are now at a crossroads for the future of not only farming but resource consumption. We clearly see how the elite of the world are pushing their ideas of food production and healthy consumption. I, for one, am not going to take it quietly and, believe me, if we all get loud and start steering instead of just riding along, we can make it great again. 

Certainly by now you have heard the man who owns a ton of farmland in the United States has said “we need to move away from meat consumption”. Bill Gates promotes the false narrative that cows, and all animals for the matter, are anything but healthy for the planet. Animals consume only plants; plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen so how can they convince anyone to the contrary?

I’ve got to be honest, my first inclination is to go find the research that proves that grazing animals improve the health and absorptive capacity of plants. While the research exists and we have been waving the science flag for a long time, how well has that worked for us? NOT WELL AT ALL!!

What if we just apply a little bit of common sense and take a look at this. We have billionaire Bill Gates, who is suddenly getting attention about vaccinations, disease control, food production and climate health. This is the same Bill Gates that was convicted in 1998 of violating the Sherman Antitrust Act; a conviction that was later overturned in exchange for what? I have watched his 3 hour deposition from 1998 and if you haven’t done so I would encourage you to get a hold of it. I am guessing you will come to the same conclusion I did: this guy is a sleazeball that will do anything for control. So why on earth would consumers listen to him about planet health and feeding their families?

For the same reason that the verdict was overturned, Bill buys his way out of every situation. He created the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation to turn his tarnished image around by making us think he “just wants to help people”. This is the same guy who has said publicly, “if we do a really great job with new vaccines, health care and reproductive services we can lower that (population) by 1.3%.” Then you read that the fact checkers report that when Bill Gates is quoted about reducing population, “it is taken out of context”. Really? Who sponsors these “fact checkers”?

This is the same guy that talks about creating a filter to reduce sunlight. Folks,“farmer Bill” is going to fail at farming before he even starts if he thinks he can reduce sunlight and still continue the cycle of life. It appears to be an ironic week in the Great Plains of America to talk about global warming. As I write this column, we and many others are experiencing rolling blackouts. Four million people in Texas are still without power because our policy makers have been listening to this sleazeball about the dangers of coal. Ranchers moved away from using windmills to water livestock because they were labor intensive and unreliable. Can someone please point out to our national leaders that if farmers and ranchers find something that is more reliable than wind power, it is ill-guided for the rest of the nation to go with what we left behind.

At the end of the day, real Americans do not have the resources to buy the networks to lobby all of the policy makers but we do still have the basic right of free speech. I know every attempt is being made to censor you and I but there is always a way to share our story. At the current crossroads of this nation, there is no straight ahead; it is a T and we will have no choice but to either turn right or turn left. Please help us steer the vehicle in the right direction for the future of our country.

Researchers recently announced the extraction of DNA from Secretariat and we see how that shines a light on the FFA Creed.

Kangaroo Harvest Management Plan

The Kangaroo Harvest Management Plan sets the objectives and requirements for commercial kangaroo harvesting. Harvesting must be ecologically sustainable, humane, and only undertaken by authorised people.

To ensure the sustainability of Victorian kangaroo populations, the plan sets out the requirement for commercial harvest quotas across 7 harvest zones. The harvest quotas are the maximum number of kangaroos that can be taken under the program each year.]

Loos Tales for Feb 11, 2021 It is the time of year for stupid State sponsored bill for legislation but Oregon bill 3008 really gets my goat


We tend to think that laws made 1000 miles away will never affect us, but that is wrong. When the circus is told they can not have elephants traveling with them, it is only a matter of time until pigs, sheep, goats and cattle follow suit.

Question is should I drink almond juice instead of milk for hormone reasons?

 First of all hormones must be present for any nutrition to be provided. Hormones in food and actually protein supplies. But in case you are considering avoiding cows milk for fear of hormones this little study from NIH should be of interest to you. Oh and by the way the Vitamin D and fat in whole milk is the best way to build the immune system to protect you from any virus.

Estrogens in food: the almond mystery - PubMed (

Studies were made of 36 different nuts, grains, fruits and vegetables commonly used as human foods; each of these was fed to a group of ovariectomized rats for 10 days as a sole diet. The estrogenic activities of the foods were estimated by comparing the uterine weights, uterine fluid volumes and the vaginal cornification indices of each group of rats with those of groups fed other foods. Almonds, cashew nuts, peanuts, oats, corn, wheat and apples all showed estrogenic activity. The original sample of almonds showed the greatest estrogenic activity (p less than 0.01) which was confirmed by repetition of the experiment (p less than 0.01), but subsequent studies of other samples of almonds showed no estrogenic activity. Possible reasons for the disparity of the results with different lots of almonds are discussed.

Apparently there is a new Gold Rush in Oklahoma Farmland.


The new land rush is on (written for publishing in High Plains Journal)

I won’t pretend this is anything new but certainly we have seen some very interesting and, in fact, outright concerning things happening in the world of land ownership. I first watched a video of a gentleman talking about a friend in Oklahoma who was approached by a Chinese-influenced individual to purchase his farm. I reached out to him because I want to verify every single thing I hear these days, but I got no response. I put it out of my mind until I got a call from a farmer I know in Oklahoma who was very concerned about what he saw happening around him. 

I have now made several calls to folks I know and clearly something out of the ordinary is happening. Payne County, the rich region near Cushing, seems to have a high rate of land transactions lately and these are not isolated to one area but this is going on statewide. I am writing this only to share what we currently know and hoping this will spur on a better discussion and sheds some light on the facts.

We already know that Chinese-sponsored individuals are buying tracts of land and paying for them with cash. I have been told that they walk into closings with backpacks full of cash. Surely there is nothing fishy about that? 

I have had many friends tell me that foreign residents cannot own farmland in the state of Oklahoma, so I looked up the statutes that I believe apply to what I am hearing. 

Okla. Const. art. XXII §1 to 2:

Non-U.S. citizens cannot acquire or own land; if they acquire by devise or descent, they have to dispose of it within 5 years. Corporations can’t buy, acquire, deal or trade in real estate unless it is in incorporated cities and towns. The exception is to secure a loan or collect a debt, and they must divest within 7 years


owning, holding or taking real estate that is necessary for carrying out business for which any corporation has been lawfully formed in the state

So what I am told is that most of these land acquisitions have occurred since election day 2020. I am also being told that there is always a residence on the property and Chinese individuals quickly move into the homes. Immediately after that, a grow house for medical marjuina is constructed. For the record, medical marjuina is not an “agricultural crop” so are they taking this farm out of “farming”?

Again I would remind you that I am sharing this information with you with the clear intention of rattling the cage to see if the snake actually has teeth and will bite. Yes, please share with me facts about this issue. I really don’t want the sentence to start with “I heard” because I want just actual facts.

In that regard, I have been compiling data on Bill Gates investment of millions of dollars on farmland in 19 states. In my home state of Nebraska, he currently owns 20,000 acres. I have acquired records from County Assessors offices and am trying to establish patterns and motivation. I am wide open to the idea that he has billions of dollars and is simply looking to invest in land in a very uncertain economic time. I will also share that most of what I have found regarding Gates farmland purchases occurred in 2017. I also know that he sponsored the most recent American Farm Bureau convention to the tune of $100,000. WHY?

For as long as I have been in the public eye, I have been trying to get farmers recognition when it comes to our contribution to improving life. It appears to me that folks outside of our community understand that “he who holds the gold makes the rules” and I am bringing this to your attention so we can prevent the whole gold mine from being taken over. Ironically or not, it was an Okie that made famous the saying, “Buy land; they ain’t making any more of the stuff.” 

Boy, we could sure use a good dose of Will Rogers in this world  today!
