Just a farmer… Just a person…


Today’s thought: Farmers are people too, we enjoy many of the same hobbies as other’s who walk this great earth. We farmers might be small in numbers however mighty in what we provide as nourishment to this world. Yes farmers are humans first and we are emotionally connected to being the best caretaker’s we can be for our great resources in this world.

  1. I agree with your thoughts Ray! Many people don’t realize the responsibilities of the farmer and their families. Along with the dependency of market conditions, feed and equipment prices, weather conditions (biggy) , they are committed to daily routines that leave little time for themselves! It is hard for farmers to enjoy the luxuries that many others take for granted. I tip my hat to all farmers!! Brad D.

  2. As a fellow Dairy Producer, kudos to Ray for posting this. Every human needs to know they are appreciated and important in their own little corner of the world. We act accordingly! So thank you to all involved in the Agriculture Industry in these great United States!
