The video brings attention to the complex process that brings food, and sheets, into our lives. Agriculture is often overlooked and undesirable. The video gives a young face to agriculture.

 

Payton Sidney Dinwiddie 's curator insight, October 25, 2014 6:27 PM

I like this article because it shows that most of the things we do is related to agriculture there are so many things we take for granted  and things that people dont recongnize have to deal with agriculture its almost surprising after watching this I believe that people who do agriculture need more respect

Bella The Non-Vampire's curator insight, December 1, 2014 5:11 AM

Agriculture involves everyone. People today dont think about where their food comes from. They don't think about how their food is made. Which is all agriculture.  Now agriculture has faded where no one remembers it still exists. Agriculture is something we include in our daizly lives. The big process of food.

If only animals worldwide were treated this way, then there would not be such thing as animal discrimination. As animals are living things they ought to have rights. Think of it this way, if you are willing to treat your pet dog or cat with the care you treat him with, what’s wrong with treating a cow humanly? People argue that animals aren't humans; well that is obviously true, but as living things with human-like features they deserve the right to not be mistreated. This video respects that and should be an example to other farmers who disrespect the animals in their farms. Also I think that the rule about “If the milk has antibiotics it will be dumped out” is a pretty good one. Farmer’s know what is at stake so they are more likely to take good care of the animals.
Lexi Jones's comment, February 21, 2013 8:51 PM
When watching this documentary on a family dairy farm, I was an awe of how these cows are treated. In the past year, I have heard that cows are treated with the worst kind of respect, live in the worst conditions, and are not care for. In this documentary, I see a whole new output to dairying cows. This family actually takes the time to care for each and every one of their cows. They feed them the alfalfa plant, which is the better alternative for corn, and has a real vet come out to their farm and check the health of their cows. What anyone hears now a days is cows always being discriminated and suffering. Now we can spread this news of a new way to dairy cows that are beneficial to the cows and the consumers. Cows are now starting to be treated better.

Cows are treated with some of the best respect because they are your pay check and your way of life when your a farmer

Valorie Morgan's curator insight, November 7, 2013 10:13 AM

The new immigration laws have caused farmers to cut back on crops due to low empolyment rate. The immgrants that were currently working for farmers, ran off in fear of being captured. I'm against this law, I see exactly where the farmers are coming from. I believe these laws are pointless, it's just people trying to make an honest buck in the hot sun. Alabama is losing a great deal of agriculture due to this new law. Even though, they say its againast the law. I don't see the point. Why be so hard on these farmer??

Anhony DeSimone's curator insight, December 19, 2013 12:08 AM

This article shows how important it is to follow the natural way of agriculture. With the new laws in Alabama being passed it now allows people to grow crops in an unnatural way which is devastating predicament to the agricultural world.
