Alright, here is the first piece of equipment for National Agriculture Week. Comment on this post with your guess as to what this is. I will approve all posts tommorrow sometime, so you will not see your comment or anyone else’s until then. As you can see, we got a nice little snowfall last night also.
To make this more educational, I will add a detailed description of the item tomorrow including the cost of the equipment to give everyone an idea of how capital intensive agriculture has become. Good Luck!
This week is National Agriculture Week. Tuesday of this week is National Ag Day. In celebration of this week, I will be posting pictures of equipment on our farm, both historic, and modern. Please enter a guess as to what it is as a comment on our blog. I will approve all of the posts the day after you all enter them and we will have a good laugh at all of the responses. Please do not be afraid to respond as this is supposed to be educational for those of you who are not close to agriculture, or maybe we are involved in a different type of agriculture.
Make sure you take a look at the fun farm facts as we celebrate this week. In my county here in Nebraska, agriculture is directly and indirectly responsible for 1 out of every 3 jobs. Animal agriculture is the largest economic sector of our economy in both our county and the State of Nebraska. Happy National Agriculture Week!
