Kansas Rancher Brandi Buzzard Frobose just wrote an open letter (see below) to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that claps back respectfully at the Congresswoman for her support of the ‘Green New Deal.’ The proposal by Ocasio-Cortez discusses cutting down on methane gas aka ‘cow farts.’ Ocasio Cortez just spoke about how she believes Americans should eat less beef:
She was asked about farting cows during an appearance on Showtime’s series “Desus and Mero:
“In the deal, what we talk about is, it’s true, is that we need to take a look at factory farming, period. It’s wild…And so, it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture. It’s not to say we’re going to force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, listen, we’ve got to address factory farming.”
“Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real.”
This will definitely play well in Iowa, Ohio, and Minnesota. pic.twitter.com/MyXmRrr6dx

Yes, the left is concerned about “farting cows,” and they want you to eat fewer burgers.
The Kansas ‘Cowgirl’ took action and wrote an open letter to Ocasio-Cortez that included facts supporting why cows are “superheroes”. We’ve included the highlights from her letter, but please check out her blog about what it’s like to farm and be a cattle rancher: BUZZARD’s BEAT – Chronicles of a Kansas Cowgirl
You don’t know me from Adam.
I’m a Kansas rancher out here in the sticks loving life while raising beef with my family!
As a beef producer in rural Kansas working with my family to raise cattle, I feel the need to point out some facts about agriculture that were misrepresented in your Green New Deal.
As a rancher, I can tell you that we take the quality of the great outdoors very seriously – air, soil and water quality are all of utmost importance to us here because, well we are the ones living here in the sticks. Which is why our segment of agriculture actively works to reduce our impact on the environment every. single. day.
You might wonder how us farmers and ranchers are lessening our footprint? Good question:
-We are using better genetics from cattle to produce animals that yield more tasty beef using fewer inputs from water and land.
-Every year we are utilizing the best technology available to us to help us manage the health and growth of our animals so we can be efficient with our resources.
-Did you know that cows are great up-cyclers AND recyclers? Cows are able to take foods like sugar beet pulp and carrot tops – things that would otherwise be wasted as food production by-products – and turn those into beef. This reduces the overall amount of food waste in our great nation. Additionally, what other animal do you know that can take grass and turn it into a delicious steak? Seriously, cows are like superheroes.
