National Ag Day
As we cope with the tumultuous times, many of us are seeking things that make us more comfortable. We may look back to when times were simpler. Farming is one of those reassuring visions that comes to mind. Regardless of where you reside, in the city or in the country, images of tractors tilling farmland, harvesting their crops, or tending to their livestock, provides a down-home feeling.
Most farms today are still family-run operations, although it may not seem so due to the size and sophistication of the modern farming unit. However, through changes in farming techniques and mechanization, the American farmer has not changed.
Farmers and ranchers are strong, determined, honest, and hard-working producers of the food and fiber that feeds the world. They bring everyone to the table, whether literally or through video calls. On National Ag Day, we celebrate American farmers for what they have done and what they continue to do.
