Equine Agvocate

Chuck Zimmerman

When I noticed the Gator on Valentina’s Macbook Pro during my Agvocacy 2.0 breakout I had to meet a fellow Florida Gator. She is from Florida and attended the University of Florida to study animal science, specifically equine industry. Valentina is getting her MBA and plans to be in farming in the future. She came to Agvocacy 2.0 to learn more about using social media for networking with other people. She says social media provides her with a mechanism to spread the word about agriculture so consumers better understand where their food comes from and how it gets in the supermarket.
