Today I had the opportunity to mingle with some great folks that feed our cows and the world…grain producers! Every year, these producers get together to learn about how they can insure their crops and also to visit and eat a great meal! On the menu today was chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans, rolls, and cobbler!
DID YOU KNOW THAT EVERY KANSAS FARMER FEEDS 148 PEOPLE PLUS YOU????
I have a great appreciation for these producers because without them, we wouldn’t be able to feed our cows and we also wouldn’t have food on our table! Without them, there would be no bread, corn, beans, steak, and the list goes on! Not only do they feed cows and us, but also chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, horses…. Are you starting to get the picture that without these hard working farmers our food supply as we know it would not exist?!?
So, this is my challenge to you: Thank at least one farmer this week for the food you eat!
