Rancher Pens Brutally Honest Letter to AOC, Delivers Reality Check

A Kansas rancher has written a letter to Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rebuking the far-left representative’s bizarre attack on “farting cows.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal turned heads when it was released last week because of its over-the-top proposals.

The self-identified socialist proposed upgrading every building in the country, providing free college education, and offering everyone a guaranteed job with “family-sustaining wages.”

In the Green New Deal “frequently asked questions” page obtained by NPR, which is now disputed by Ocasio-Cortez, there was even an attack on “farting cows.”

“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” the FAQ read.

The FAQ also suggested that ranchers and farmers would need to make changes in accordance with the socialist’s green energy agenda.

“Work with farmers and ranchers to create a sustainable, pollution and greenhouse gas free, food system that ensures universal access to healthy food and expands independent family farming,” the FAQ suggested.

But a Kansas rancher and beef producer named Brandi Buzzard Frobose has some facts liberal Democrats might not know about.

In a letter published Friday on the website Buzzard’s Beat, Frobose — who is also communications director for the Red Angus Association of America, a beef trade group — pointed out that ranchers are already efficient in reducing their environmental impact.

Frobose noted that “the U.S. produces nearly 20% of the world’s beef with only 9% of the world’s cattle.”

The letter also pointed out that the U.S. beef industry has already been reducing its greenhouse gas emissions despite the “farting cows.”

Farmers and ranchers have been able to reduce their environmental impact through constant innovation, according to Frobose.

“We are using better genetics from cattle to produce animals that yield more tasty beef using fewer inputs from water and land,” the letter stated.

Additionally, Frobose wrote, ranchers 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.”

And since liberals love recycling, Frobose had this point to make:

“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.”

I put my money where my mouth is and wrote Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a letter. I very respectfully…

Obviously, Ocasio-Cortez should have consulted a rancher before carelessly slamming “farting cows” seemingly out of nowhere.

And the Frobose letter called her on that, too.

“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, I appreciate your dedication to improving our earth and pursuing sustainable futures but I beseech you to please have a conversation with your constituents and colleagues that have an agriculture background,” she wrote.

But that would mean talking to someone who actually has experience in solving real-world problems, not just chasing leftist ideals.

The far-left won’t let reality or logistics get in the way of their impossibly lofty dreams.

    AOC should pledge and then be required not to eat fart-causing vegetation.

      I agree. I guess broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts and other gas producing vegetables are going to be forbidden.

      AOC has sniffed too many cow farts already!

      There are more human beings farting, so are we next? Maybe she doesn’t fart, and that’s why her brain doesn’t let her know, that if she had an intelligent thought in her head, she would shut her ignorant mouth. She is lacking in common sense, and intelligence, and in my opinion, she has an overabundance of ignorance.

    Bravo to the rancher for speaking up. Farmers and ranchers are considered the most important people on earth cuz they feed everybody. Many city dwellers like Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez don’t even know where their food comes from. That’s why we were contacted many years ago for a project to show people how important food growers are.

    I do not believe anyone can teach AOC anything. She never learned anything about the real world hence we cannot teach her anything now. I feel she is not teachable. She has one reason and one reason only …and that is to continue where Obama left off. After all he flat out told us that he will fundamentally change the United States.

    The Frobose letter was so nice.

    But this aoc is not interested in scientific fact in agriculture, horticulture or I daresay biology. or any other

    She and her ilk are solely interested in totalitarianism, tyranny, controlling people’s lives. Multitudes follow her mostly because they are scared to death of the world.

    The individual does not count for this young wench – only groupthink.

    AOC must be a Vegan??, that might explain the few malnourished brain cells that she does have?

    I have to say though I’d like to know more about what the rancher stated about using better genetically producing cows? And 9% of the worlds cattle producing 20% of the worlds beef. Maybe we should look at a better diet for the cows with NO hormones and give them water. We have a cancer rate in this country that is harming all. AOC and her bunch are out there – no doubt. But this raises some questions for me.

      The point being they get water and grass and the by product of the veggies they grow so instead of then being wasted they are consumed by the cattle they aren’t just feeding then rotten leftovers. The world could eat less in general I agree but that’s the beauty of freedom you eat as much as you want and can afford. Cancer isn’t coming from cows or what they ate it’s all the shit we pump into the planet around us the a plants literally seeping radiation into the ground and sky’s around them being spread by the irradiated rain water granted it’s not at lethal levels but it does cause cancer my area is riddled with it. They had to make a multiple million dollar fund for the former still alive workers oft the now closed for decades a plant around here which still causes cancer to those who lived around it or worked there pre closure. Still irradiated ground that they are trying to contain and clean to this day.

      Me too. I want to eat hormone free meat. That does raise questions for sure. Being a farmer’s daughter and having eaten hormone free, grass fed cattle meat, I know what I am talking about.

    I can’t help but wonder where AOC believes fertilizer, (to grow her vegetables), will come from if we eliminate cows, goats, chickens, etc. Maybe it will come from the crap that spews out of her mouth!

    That AOCortez deserves no respect. She is an ignorant, dumb, stupid, arrogant woman and that makes her dangerous.

    Funny that the insults and offensive rhetoric hurled at AOC are the same ones used on conservative Rpublicans. The Kansas beef farmer provided no scientific evidence to support her opinions. That won’t work. We need facts, not opinions.

    Humans fart too. So AOC, whatcha gonna do? Do away with all the humans? Well start with yourself if that become a by-product goal of yours.
