Hey y'all, happy Monday!
In each day of your life you use a by product from agriculture. Here are some examples..
My GOAL over these next couple of weeks is to educate and promote all things agriculture of course but also make you AWARE of how much YOU use/consume agriculture products.
Supporting all types of growers/farmers whether it be livestock/ranching, gardens, row crop farmers.
Also supporting those who work in the industry gathering these products, working in the factories to produce or put to together all the products we consume in our life.
AGRICULTURE AWARENESS IS VITAL.
You see this past week the industry has had yet another fallback, because of a major influencer "The Golden Globes", this week decided to "Go Vegan" for "Environmental Awareness"
For those of you who may not know what Vegan is, it means that one will not consume: MEAT, EGGS, or DAIRY PRODUCTS. Basically they will not use or eat anything that comes from an animal.
Yes vegan is a choice, and my no means wrong. I couldn't do it if we are being honest and not just because I love all things agriculture but I cannot live without meat, eggs or diary products. And for all those reading this saying oh you could you just don't want to... your right I don't want to.
Yes vegans, still eat plant based food, so yes they technically are using agriculture products still.
But it still makes a huge negative impact on dairy, meat, and poultry sections of agriculture.
Let's also just throw in the food pyramid we learned in 3rd grade as well which consist of meat, dairy, veggies, fruits, all of the above and more.
Just like the Ellen post I posted if you don't want to eat meat or consume some products then that is okay and your choice BUT do not bash the industry.
WHO IS GOING TO BE FEEDING THE WORLD IN 2050?
When huge influencers make statements like this everyone starts to jump on the bandwagon.
Here's to learning together and growing together, and spreading all things agriculture in our daily life.
Hey, it's me again Catlin. Just wanted to give you a little more detail about what my plan is for " A Growers Granddaughters" blog. My intention is to keep you up to date on my life adventures in agriculture such as research projects, a little gardening, and my grandads farm,Lively H, which inspired me to pursue a career in agriculture. This blog is not only for you to read but also see all the behind the scenes on the farm, and educate you more on agriculture topics. If you have any questions, please comment, or email me, If there is a topic in agriculture you are unsure about, shoot me and email.
