Paint brushes, laundry detergents and college textbooks are haphazardly flung about my garage. And house.
But my disorganized home is not the point.
Those items are part of agriculture.
No, they aren’t a cow, sow or plow. But they are byproducts from those animals and the crops grown by farmers and ranchers.
Because agriculture is so much more than our food and clothes.
It’s construction. Lumber, paints and brushes.
It’s printing. Paper, ink and textbooks.
Do you play sports? Own a baseball glove or bat? That’s agriculture!
