Give Thanks

Tomorrow is the day to "Thank a Farmer" on your Facebook, Twitter, Blog or other social networking sites.

We're going to try to make this a trending topic from 10 a.m. to noon (CST) using the hashtag #thankafarmer.

I know many of you have participated in the Give Thanks program. This is one more way to get the word out about the importance of agriculture. If you haven't posted a note on the NCBA Thank A Farmer site, today's the day. If you aren't on Twitter, but want to participate, shoot me a note. I'm happy to help show you the ropes.

American's take for granted their safe, cheap food supply. We spend a lower percentage of our paychecks on food than anyone else on the planet. People who aren't connected to the land don't realize the work that our farmers do so they can enjoy a holiday feast or a snack on the run.

Thank a farmer and tell the world how important they are.
