Preserve, Protect and Defend

Help us help You.  Your support helps us continue to ensure that the voice of the family farmer is never muffled.

Our Mission:

To promote and defend free markets, family farming, and food sustainability for everyone.

Our Vision:

To Ensure Farmers, and the families they feed, have the information they need to protect family farm revenue and improve sustainability practices from seed to feed, food, and fuel.

Proactivism® is not affiliated with any other agricultural or corporate organization. We welcome people of all beliefs to join together to find common ground around food.  We pledge active involvement (with your participation) in clearing away the fog of conflict that threatens family farming and food sustainability.

Proactivism is a grassroots mission to:

  1. Reverse the decline in commodity soybean protein since biotechnology debuted.
  2. Help farmers recapture billions in feed sales lost to synthetic substitutes.
  3. Prioritize natural livestock feed, which naturally cuts CO2 and Nitrogen.
  4. Use informed see selection to protect soybean protein from being undermined by biofuel policies. Soybean oil is inverse to protein, so crushing soybeans without protecting nutrition value harms food security.
  5. Tap into the millions of tons of biofuel plant protein to make nutrition supplements for malnourished moms and infants. More than 500 million people could be helped if multinational food companies work on food security and let farmers focus on farm sustainability.
  6. Help rural and urban audiences find common ground around food.

Proactivism works to influence political activity in the U.S. to:

  1. Establish and improve the credibility and acceptability of an ecosystem approach to farm practices and policies that can rapidly improve feed value and reduce greenhouse gasses from livestock
  2. Inform the public regarding the hidden, field-level facts of family farming and food sustainability
  3. Dispel myths, hearsay and false evidence used to undermine family farms and the consumers’ rights to farm and eat whatever foods they want
  4. Assure that farmers get paid their fair share for producing higher quality feed and fuel products

Giving Voice to Family Farms

For far too long factor food companies have tried to tell family farmers how to farm. Help us push back with field-level facts that help protect the whole ecosystem.
