Future Farmers Will Feed the World
Life on the Farm in the 1960s
Life on a farm in the late 1960s was much different than the modern dairy farms of today. In those days small dairy farms were scattered all over the rural areas of America. Now most small farms have vanished leaving empty buildings and ground that has been over taken with weeds. In order to survive the industry today farmers must think in much larger figures just to make a profit. Hard times over the years have discouraged America’s youth into making plans of starting farms of their own. Our food supply could be in danger if the next generation farmer fails to show interest in this business. If not for the future farmers of America where will the rest of us get our meals in the years to come?
Farming can be Rewarding
Farming is not a glamorous job. Hard work, long hours, and little pay often leers would be farmers away from its consideration. But for those loving a challenge and are not afraid of getting their hands dirty it can be very rewarding. The love for animals, plants, and the great outdoors can spark an interest that may make people want to be farmers.
America's Back Roads
Farms are a great place to raise kids. It restores values and responsibilities associated with taking care of animals. With a little effort our youth could be interested once again in farming. Farmers feed the world. We need the next generation farmer. There are many kinds of farms such as dairy, beef, sheep, swine, poultry, vegetables, and tree farmers. America's back roads will never be the same without the present of these slowly diminishing businesses. The question is who will feed us then?
