As an individual with an agricultural journalism degree, marketing is a big part of my background. But deceptive marketing or false mar- keting drives me nuts. There are marketing schemes that take advantage of consumers, and I think a lot of shoppers fall for it. Organic, non-GMO… most consumers are not educated and think those products are uniformily superior. So many products labeled "non GMO" don't even have a ge- netically modified counterpart. It's almost like putting "non GMO" on copy paper and charging more for it. It's fake news, but customers are buying into it. Fast forward to last week. I was at the grocery store stocking up for a couple weeks when I pointed my basket down the pet food aisle. We have a herd of barn cats that work mice and snake patrol, and I never leave the grocery store without at least 40 pounds of cat food. As I was scanning the shelf for the cheapest feline cuisine, I couldn't help notice the wide array of dog bones for sale. We have a puppy at our house, so finding something for "John Wayne" to chew on instead of my shoes sounded pretty appealing. I've heard rawhide can get stuck in the digestive tract of dogs if they swallow a large piece. At this point in puppy parenting I wouldn't put anything past John Wayne, so I picked up a package of "easily di- gestible" dog chews. That's when I saw it. 6DWLVI\\RXUGRJ·VXUJH WRFKHZZLWKRSHQSDVWXUH JUDVVIHGEHHIKLGH Whaaaat? Open pasture, grass fed beefhide? And you guessed it. Those "premium" dog chews were more expensive than the rest. I know there is a difference in texture and flavor of grass fed and grain fed meat. But the hide? Maybe the company feels this is a successful marketing tactic for those who believe cattle in feedlots are mistreated. Maybe cer- tain consumers would spend more money for this brand of dog chews because they are uninformed about beef production. Maybe they think these dog chews are superior just because the package implies that? Think twice about purchasing items based on "creative market- ing." Help educate your friends and neighbors. Tell them about your business and how cattlemen care for animals. We have to speak up because these creative market- ing tactics are buying in to our consumers. John Wayne did get some dog chews out of the deal. But they weren't certified non-GMO, open range or guaranteed grass fed. And he liked them all the same.
