The Missouri Farm Bureau's president, Blake Hurst, shared some pretty insightful quotes on HSUS while being interviewed about Monday's SB 113 compromise and today's "Stand Up for Animal Agriculture" rally in Jefferson City:
“I’m not convinced that dogs, or the welfare of animals is always [HSUS’s] main concern. They’re in this for fundraising, for publicity. They meet their goals by causing conflict. We Missourians meet our goals by coming together and coming up with a solution.”
“Everybody in agriculture who follows these issues is convinced that this is the Humane Society’s opening shot … I hope not, but I’m afraid it’s going to be a long war, and its’ important that we show the strength of Missouri agriculture, that we show how we can work together and stand together when we’re threatened from outside.”
