Supporting Agriculture Through #KamikazeCows and #Agritainers

In my last post I asked the question if the different factions of agriculture could band together to increase consumer awareness in an agricultural related event. If we look at cowboy poets, musicians, and story tellers as the #Agritainers they are, perhaps we can draw in enough people to possibly tend on twitter.

February 3, at 6pm we are kicking off the Texas Crossroads Cowboy Gathering with a Calcutta auction on the entertainers to raise money for the local 4H Club and Christian Homeless Shelter. As each entertainer in the auction will perform their own original version  of a poem, song, or story with the title The Kamikaze Cow before being bid on we are calling it the #KamikazeCowCalcutta. The Crossroads Gathering will run until the Cowboy Church is over on Sunday February 6th and we will be averaging a minimum of six tweets per hour.

If you wish to participate, just follow @Texascrossroad on Twitter from the third of February until the sixth. If you keep the @Texascrossroad complete profile open in your browser, every tweet we do will show up and all you have to do is click on the Retweet link.

If you want to watch the live broadcast you can do it at the Crossroads  website or on the browser below. Spread the word and lets see where the #KamikazeCow and #Agritainers can take us.
