As many of you know we speak on behalf of the MN Farm Bureau through a program called “Speak for Yourself.” This program allows farmers to get out there and tell the real story of farming.
This morning, Mark & I spoke at the Faribault Sertoma club. It was a little different because we didn’t have our normal projection screen, but we made it work. This group was awesome! They had a ton of questions after the presentation, and I think we did a pretty good job of answering them and giving some awesome statistics about farming.
One of my favorite statistics (because I love wildlife-both to hunt and watch) is that farmers put over 31 million acres into CRP land every single year, providing over 75% of all wildlife habitat in the US.
How cool is that?!
Overall, the presentation went really well! I’m glad I got to do this one with my husband at my side. The last one I had to do alone and that can get hard when he is the one who is the expert on some of the more technical aspects of the farm!
