Food for Thought

Written by Carrie Isaacson, Brock Center Associate Editor

Seems like an easy question right? They grow crops and livestock, right? Well, that is very true, but American farmers grow much more than just corn, soybeans and tomatoes. This video from AmericanFarmers.com and Monsanto reminds American consumers that American Farmers grow jobs, clothes and so much more. I hope this video spreads quickly throughout the country and helps to communicate to consumers just how vital American Agriculture is to every second of our lives. Please, pass this video on and help to spread the message!
