Don't Underestimate the one who feeds YOU!
Friday, January 18, 2013
And I noticed and thought to myself..These people all do a SERVICE or things really we don't NEED, and these people are living the high life....
NEEDS: what are they really? Then we have the hard working people who produce your eggs, feed the cattle, hogs, chickens to make your $100 filets of steak at fancy restuarants....and yet not one of these people, have a home like this?
Do you realize that off of 5000 acres of ground, we could feed a country? Off of 5000 acres of ground, you could flip and have that exact 50 million dollar home on the ocean like these people...yet, we don't. The 5000 acres that we farm is worth 50,000,0000 PLUS dollars in todays market. WE keep PRODUCING off of it, feeding people.... verses waste it on a home that sits there empty, with house cleaners and yaght cleaners, draining money.
We are not just dust kicking "Farmers". We are extremely smart business men and women. We, the Farmers of this country, Feed the US and other countries, by sending our grain over on barges across the ocean to feed other nations. Just saying. Think about it the next time you eat those french fries at McDonalds, those potatoes come from Farmers in MN, Idaho and farmers I work with.
One small thought for the day. Please don't underestimate your $1.59 eggs at the market. Someday, this world may realize just how important farmers are in their life. Sadly, I don't think it will be in my generation.
