Technology is such an important part of everyone’s lives, yet it is also constantly changing. The technology that people use daily was not around 10 or 20 years ago, just as ten years from now technology is going to be very different from today. These advances have made such an impact on agriculture, education, and communication that we often catch ourselves asking what did we do before GPS, text messaging, or whatever is making our lives easier at that moment. Due to these advances, people have more information available to them at any given moment than any time before, and this has had drastic impacts on agriculture. The public is very concerned about where their food is coming from, how it was raised, and how it is processed. As farmers, we must be part of the discussion. The amount of incorrect and intentionally false information is easily accessible and at times garners more attention from the public and press than the factual information that is also available. Mississippi Farm Bureau® has started this blog as a way to engage in exchange of information with relevant, interesting, and factual information for the public to use. We strive to keep the topics on this blog fresh, useful, and reflective of the passion, dedication, and love our members have for their farms, animals, and lifestyles. We encourage you to join the conversation with us in the comment sections.
