This was my comment:

Ma’am, if you are really worried about cow’s manure harming the environment, I sure hope that you do not drive a vehicle, drink or buy anything packaged in plastic or use electricity in your household.  I could go on and on about the everyday things that millions of people do every single day that are imparting a far larger carbon footprint than methane gas from cow manure.  You should use your energy on something far less ridiculous.  

The agriculture industry works hard to feed this nation.  And we will continue to.  And we will continue to be faced with asinine complaints and ridiculous people who aren’t the least bit thankful for what they have the opportunity to enjoy.  You may think that you are trying to make the world a better place, but look at the bigger picture.  There are millions of people in this world starving.  The agriculture industry would love to feed that population but is limited due to regulations set forth by people forcing their own agenda, like yourself.  

Be thankful for what you have. 

This world has a lot of problems. Cow shit isn’t one of them.

Great thoughts. It’s always important to look at an issue on both sides, weighing the benefits versus the consequences.  I urge you to read this piece on Genetically Modified Organisms.  I know that it seems to be a scary term in today’s food production but take a look at how it helps production:

GMO Seeds

I realize that people are up in arms about GMOs and that they believe they are going to cause more damage than they can do good, but have people ever looked at what these GMOs mean for farmers of both the United States and other countries that might not be able to grow certain crops?

I know I haven’t blogged in a while and what a summer it has been!  But I’m back and just in time for harvest - I always know summer’s really ending when the corn comes off the fields!  

Harvest is such a busy time in agriculture. it’s the time when agriculturalists get to see the final product of all their hard work and dedication and when the livestock industries are restocked with feed to help their businesses thrive.  Then, with a cooperative effort the agriculture industry is able to put food on your table.

I hope you all are loving and appreciating the ag around you!

“At one time, much of our population was involved in farming – in 1940, the average farmer grew enough food for only 19 other people. And that was pretty close to enough.”

“Today, since farmers only account for two percent of the American population, they have to work a lot harder to feed…
