About FF&F

Fur, Farm, and Fork has been a lot of things over the years. It’s been about research, scientific education, ethics, analysis of food production and animal agriculture, public health, food safety, scientific integrity, and even just an excuse to read and think critically about published research. It’s even opened up some opportunities that were pretty spectacular back when I was a student.

Today it serves as a platform for scientific education and analysis of all things food safety. I hope that the content on this blog provides some grey area on subjects that are polarizing and heated, and that it can be seen as a resource for food and animal topics to those who want to listen without being shouted at. If you disagree with what’s on here and bring a citation I haven’t seen before, oh how we will be friends. If you learn something new about regulations, industry, or research, then please pass it on to someone else.

If you’d like to submit a guest post to FF&F, please leave a comment with your website/email and I’d be happy to contact you.

  1. Hi Austin,

    I produce the College of Agricultural Sciences’ e-newsletter, The Source. I came across your blog and wonder if I may link to it in the July issue of The Source? I’d introduce you with your own “about” information; any updates?
    Austin J. Bouck is a student at Oregon State University studying Animal Science with a focus in pre-veterinary medicine. He is expected to finish his undergraduate degree the spring of 2012, after which he plans on enrolling in the College of Veterinary Medicine (either at OSU or elsewhere).

    Outside of school he enjoys playing his saxophone in the OSU marching and Jazz bands, participating in the National Honorary Band Fraternity Kappa Kappa Psi, playing Horse Polo, running triathlons, fishing, camping, and video games.

  2. Hi Elisabeth,
    I’d be honored to be mentioned in The Source, I just updated the about information to reflect my recent graduation and updated plans, so you may want to change that introduction slightly. Thank you for taking notice of the blog!
