It's National Ag Day!

Dear Editor:

Today is one of the best days of the year!   It is the day where farmers get off the farm and rancher get off the ranch and tell you all about our lifestyle! Did you know, here in Montana it's not uncommon for ranches to be in the same family for 3 or 4 or 5 generations.  Youth keep coming back because we love the lifestyle and we are proud to say that we feed you and the world.  We are not perfect, don't get me wrong, but we feed our families the same food we feed yours.

That photo from the Miss Jude Capper says it all.  We are producing safe, affordable, nutritious beef along with other foods, while still giving back to the community and taking care of the land.  If we didn't manage our pastures correctly or manage the water properly the land it wouldn't take care of us.  Many ranchers and farmers are little league coaches, school board members and active members in the local church.

But today is about you, the consumer, so ask away!  I love promoting Ag and am always trying to show you our side but what concerns and questions might you have?  Please feel free to comment, email, facebook, or tweet me!  I will answer your question!  Have a great Tuesday and remember Thank a Farmer today and everyday!


  1. That's great work you're doing - farming and educating! Let me know if you ever need anything in or from Kentucky or Indiana. I don't know anything in particular about farming but grew up in a farm county and I MISS it.

  2. Thank you so much! I have a youtube video on family ranching and a facebook page. Connect on both of those, I will let you know if I ever need anything. Thank you for offering and have a great day. Feel free to share my blog with others.
