Farming 365

As we go into another Labor Day, I have to think about the agriculture industry and the concept of #farm365 and #FBProud.  

I feel pride when I think and see those 2 hash tags, they define who I am and who my family is.  We are Farm Bureau proud. I am proud to be a member of an organization where the entire goal and basis is for the support of agriculture, not as a figured head, but as neighbors going forward, to counties, to the state and finally to American. How can you not be proud to be part of such a amazing organization.

Then I look at #farm365.  There are no holidays for agriculture. Labor Day, Christmas Day, Easter. All holidays, all days of the week, and still days where animals need fed, taken care of, milked by some, eggs collected at others, irrigation during some of the holidays and cutting hay on others.  #farm365 is truly what agriculture is. Farmers and ranchers grow the crops and raise the animals that everyone use on their holiday. And we don’t do it for the recognition. Rather we do it for our way of life, our neighbors way of life, the shopper at the store and everyone who enjoys the meal before them.  As you sit down this weekend, weather your lunch, dinner or breakfast, your bbq at the lake or your day off from work, take a second, and think of the farmer who is working just another day in our paradise. #farm365
