The preferred choice for farmers of Agricultural Tracks

Are you entertaining family and friends during the holidays?  Even though you probably never run out of things to talk about, I’ve recapped 7 farm facts that Jessie Scott  writes about on agriculture.com.  You could use these to start a conversation or impress your guests!  Here they are:

  1. The International Federation of Robotics states that more than 25,000 field or agriculture robots will be sold by 2015 – about the same as robots for military use.
  2. Monsanto says women take the lead on more than 1 million (roughly 30%) U.S. farms.
  3. According to George D. Freier (Weather Proverbs), if a turkey’s feathers are very thick at Thanksgiving, expect a hard winter.
  4. IEEE Spectrum reports that a typical U.S. dairy cow provides more than four times as much milk as its 1950’s counterpart.
  5. Ohio State University declares that cover crops may reduce nutrient and pesticide runoff by 50% or more.
  6. The results of a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Baby Boomers Survey shows that 39% of baby boomers would like to move to a rural community when they retire.
  7. A Successful Farming Research Panel reports that 1 in 5 farmers own a smartphone and a tablet.

Thanksgiving Dinner

There you go – things to talk about at the dinner table or after you’ve taken your afternoon nap.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
