Valentine’s Day—Sharing my LOVE for Agriculture!

As you all know, today is the holiday for love. I deemed it as the perfect opportunity to express my love for an industry we could not live without. Agriculture is a lot of times taken for granted by so many, and it is only right to take a moment and think about everything this industry gives us. We need to show agriculture some love!

As I think about where I would be without this industry, the picture that comes to mind is downright scary. There would be no dependable sources for food, clothing, shelter, etc. We would not have the caliber of livestock and crops needed to meet our current demands. Scary to think about, right?

So today, as you spend some time with your valentine, take a brief moment to think about agriculture. Even on a holiday like Valentine’s Day, agriculture plays a huge role. Whether it be through the roses you are giving or receiving, or the chocolates you consume, agriculture is the reason those products are available for your enjoyment. Somewhere in the world, a producer developed those products for us to utilize on this holiday, so take a moment to appreciate them!

As for me, I am sitting here writing this blog thinking about the importance agriculture is to me. I love this industry not only for all the great things that comes from it, but also the foundation it lays for all of our futures. It is an industry that we all need to love and respect. We sometimes fail to think about how fortunate we are to have an agriculture industry like we do here in the United States. It is up to us to keep the industry strong so we can continue being so fortunate and blessed.

Thank you agriculture for not only providing me with a chance at a prosperous life, but also providing us all with the basic necessities we need to live. Once again, I urge all of you to take a moment today, and think about agriculture. It is time for all of us to show this industry some love, whether it be thanking a farmer, promoting products or educating others about the importance of this industry. Don’t ever be afraid to LOVE an industry that is so vital for all of us! ❤

Until next time…
