Earth Day, The Farmer, and a Sing-a-long
I know there are a bunch of polluters, haters, and takers out there and they need to see the error of their ways, but I don't get into Earth Day that much. The Farmer has his faults. We know this because we've heard The Farmer's Wife recite them loudly and often. Taking care of the land and resources doesn't make that list.
I'm sure no one is going to call The Farmer Captain Planet or anything, but the earth is probably his most valuable resource. He must use good judgement with the land as it provides for his way of life. From the crops he raises for our feed to the water we and his family drink from the wells, everything must be kept safe.
Everyday is like Earth Day for a farmer.
The Farmer is always looking for ways to use less energy, water, and other inputs and still get great results. He uses our naturally produced fertilizer that you can see in the picture to put back on his fields to raise his crops. I think that means we are doing our part, too, giving back to nature and stuff.
Now if you'll excuse me, some of the other cows and I are going to go practice singing Reduce, Reuse, Recycle for our big sing-a-long tomorrow.
