Our late President, John F. Kennedy had a famous quote pertaining to farmers. President Kennedy submitted "Farmers are the only business people that buy retail, sell wholesale & pay for the shipping BOTH ways!" As we celebrate Agriculture this month & National Agricultural Day on Thursday, March 14, the late President Kennedy's words ring true today. I often write and/or refer to "acres" on my Ag Blogs. How big IS an acre anyway? My agricultural research indicates that an acre of Montana land is about the same size as a football field without its' end zones. We're talking 43,560 feet! We're also talking the "theme" for this year's National Ag Day, "Agriculture: Food for Life." We encourage you to join with us this month in recognizing & celebrating the abundance provided by Montana Agriculture!
