Farm-tas­tic Facts

Little Angel - - CONTENTS -

I’ve dug up weird and­some won­der­ful farm facts from all over the world! Hu­bert Berger from Ger­many holds the record for the long­est trac­tor ride of all time! He vis­ited 36 coun­tries on his bumpy jour­ney. The world’s largest but­ter­fly farm is on a Malaysian is­land called Pe­nang. This mag­i­cal place is home to over 4000 but­ter­flies and more than 50 dif­fer­ent species. Wow! Ba­nanas are the top fruit crop in the world, with In­dia grow­ing more of the tasty yel­low fruit than any other coun­try! Did you know Tay­lor Swift grew up on a Christ­mas tree farm? A cow can make up to 26 litres of milk each day. Whoa! Chick­ens are great at com­mu­ni­cat­ing! They can make over 200 dif­fer­ent sounds to “talk” to their fel­low an­i­mals.

Farm­ing is big busi­ness in Aus­tralia! Aussie farms pro­duce wheat, wool, wine and meat and send it all over the world. In a 2011 sur­vey, there were 157 000 farm­ers in Aus­tralia. The first farms ap­peared around 10,000 BC. Be­fore that, peo­ple lived in tribes that moved around look­ing for food to eat.
