In class last week we were assigned to create a video with a classmate to inform people about a topic in agriculture. Nikki and I decided to take a comical approach to this video to entertain any viewers that may run across our YouTube post. I would like to disclaim before viewing that I am not completely uniformed about the use of animals but this probably is a great description of me prior to agriculture! In the beginning of studying about agriculture I always found information like this so interesting because it really is something most people take for granted. I know at least in my experience growing up I had no idea animals were needed for things like glue,nail polish, shampoo and conditioner, and other foods like marshmallows. I remember sitting in class looking at a list of hundreds of items and my jaw dropping to the floor. It is almost impossible to go through a day without using something that contains animal by-products. It gives me so much more appreciation for animals because not only do i enjoy eating them but now I have to give them credit for always having cute nails and fresh breath! Another reason I am so interested in agriculture is because it is related to almost everything in life, agriculture is interconnected with almost everything because without it we wouldn’t be living. I find it crazy now that so many individuals go a lifetime without ever knowing the importance of agriculture or even understanding the process of where our food comes from. You would think people would be more interested in what happens to the food they eat, and how it gets from the farm to the store. Growing up I never had these thoughts so I can see how it happens but now I see the great need to inform Americans about what makes living here so amazing. I hope to eventually be a part of something that can do just that, and start a revolution of informing society about what makes up the essentials of life!
