Hands down. Here’s a …

This week Aunt Jeanette writes: Some people don’t like rain – or Mondays for that matter. I am assuming since most of you that read this are in some way associated with agriculture, you are not one of those people.

As a mom who works in the agriculture industry, it’s important that my children know where their food comes from. For instance, when I read “Johnny Tractor” books with my 2-year-old daughter and she sees the picture of the cow, she knows the cow has an udder and we get milk from a cow.
