Agriculture is essential
Agriculture is a big word that means a lot to really everyone. Agriculture is more than cultivating soil, producing crops, and raising livestock, it is an essential part of our lives that we depend on. Cultivation of crops is the # 1 source of our food with livestock farming coming in at #2. Aquaculture and bee farming are common food sources as well. Agriculture products are used every day and a big part of our survival. Food, clothing, shelter, fuels, and everything plastic comes by the farm. Farmers are a special breed of people, and provide an essential service to the world. Farming is hard work and stressful and that is why farmers need to stop and relax occasionally and look at the lighter side:
A little boy ask the farmer, What you got on the back of your truck? The farmer said, I have a load of manure that I am going to put on my strawberries. The little boy said, You need to come home with me, we put ice cream on our strawberries.
Why did the scarecrow win the Nobel Prize? Because he was out standing in his field. Potatoes hate Fry-days. Why did the farmers cow jump over the moon? Because the farmer had cold hands.
What do you call a rancher that laughs all the time? A jolly rancher.
What does the dairyman talk about while milking? Udder nonsense.
I hope this is better next week from the farm!
