Farmers don’t just wear a straw hat, but they also must constantly wear their “thinking caps” too! Productive farming relies upon integrating efficient methods to feed, house and keep animals healthy. Also, farmers have to map out effective ways of seeding, harvesting and protecting crops. And don’t forget, while they are caring for the animals and crops, farmers are tech-savvy and environmental stewards. Sounds like a lot of work, right? Well, it is! Feeding over 7 million people is no small feat.
