It's National Agriculture Week!
Celebrate with a fun fact for the Day…
Did you know?
Since today is Ag Day, let’s talk about agriculture on the home front. Here are some thoughts to stimulate your thinking of the world’s safest and most abundant food supply (which is right here in the “Good Ole USA”)…
Now how is that “food for thought?” Next time you enjoy a cheeseburger at the ballgame, a glass of milk with your Oreos, a fresh salad, a slice of white bread (to go with those tomatoes we are going to talk about tomorrow), a slice of pizza at the fair, watermelon at the family reunion, bacon with your eggs for breakfast (and the list goes on), think about where and how that meal was produced.
Sure…there could always be arguments about GMO’s or organic versus conventional, or cage-free and pasture–fed options, but the thing to acknowledge is we are ALL involved with agriculture each and every day. Even if it is the clothes we wear, the make-up we apply, the tires on our vehicle we drive to work every day, the footballs (or baseballs or basketballs) at our favorite college rivalry sports games, the fuel we use to mow the lawn, our favorite beverage after a long days work, the crayons our young people use in art class, or just the roof literally over our heads housing products generated from American farms (both big and small) that we use on a daily basis...agriculture touches our lives. It touches yours; it touches mine...
EVERY SINGLE DAY!
