Why Agriculture?


When we look into the future, especially on a day like election day, what are the things that are most important for us to consider? What are issues that will always be vital to our existence? I can say without a moment of hesitation that agriculture is one of, if not the, most important sector for us to focus on.

The quote above is one of my favorites pertaining to agriculture. All of the professions mentioned are so very admirable and absolutely necessary, but how many times a day do you use an agricultural product compared to how many times you need the other services mentioned? People will always have to eat…always need clothing… always need medicines; the list goes on and on.

We often forget just where these items come from, and the work that is exerted to produce them. Better yet, we lack the ability to see the importance of education about the agriculture sector, especially when it comes to our children. I urge you, do not let agriculture fall by the wayside, or become an issue that is no longer discussed and understood. Think of agriculture always and often!
