As the world celebrates Earth Day today, I’d like to recognize the world’s original environmentalists - our farmers and ranchers. For centuries, the men and women who feed and clothe their fellow citizens have always known the value of protecting their land and animals.
Farmers and ranchers work hard every day to keep the Earth healthy, productive and sustainable. In the end, that means cleaner water, improved wildlife habitat and erosion protection for the rest of us to enjoy along with our abundant, safe and affordable food supply.
I invite you to visit our website, Agriculture is Your Culture, to learn more about how farmers and ranchers protect our environment. On Earth Day and every day, let’s appreciate our farmers and ranchers who were “green” before it was trendy.
