Recently I was nominated to participate in a farming and ranching challenge on Facebook. For ten days I shared a photo that depicted farming or ranching as I see it or know it. It was a lot of fun for me to do this, go through my photos, relive moments and memories and hopefully promote the agriculture industry and its importance in America and around the world.
I recently watched an interview with an environmentalist no less, discussing the importance of farming in the United States, not only to our own people but to people around the world. He pointed out that the food grown by a few million (I personally think that number is a little high) feeds many millions more, especially in our cities. Remember food doesn’t come from the grocery store, it comes from the hard work of some farmer or rancher in the so-called fly over country.
So I’m going to continue the challenge either here, on our Facebook page or both! If you are a reader of this blog or the Facebook page please feel free to include your own pictures too!
An oldie but a goodie! I learned an appreciation for ranching at a young age. This is me and my mare Penny getting ready to move cows in 1980-something, I believe.
