As Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I have been reflecting on what I am thankful for. I am thankful for agriculture.
Don’t let animal rights activists keep you from making some of the best childhood memories you will ever have in youth programs like 4-H and FFA.
For most people, state fairs mean funnel cakes, rusted amusement rides and, of course, corn dogs. But for people in the agricultural industry, they mean livestock shows.
Summer is upon us and while I was growing up, that only meant one thing: county fair season is here!
I am ever so grateful that I had the opportunity to raise livestock for the fair. It provided me with so much laughter, new friends and a chance to grow in many different ways.
