Myth: Farmer’s Revenue

As agriculturalists I’m sure we have all heard accusations from anti-meat activist groups about how farmers thrive on income!

Examples: PETA believes “The farming industry strives to maximize output while minimizing costs” and so many more….! But, as farmers we know that income is perhaps the LAST reason we raise animals. To prove it, check out these statistics about Texas agriculture ALONE, just released in the Texas Agriculture Magazine.

 

Drought LOSSES for 2011:

$3.23 billion in cattle industry

$2.2 billion in cotton

$750 million in hay

$736 million in corn

$314 million in wheat

$385 million in sorghum

Still think farmers and ranchers thrive on income?? I think not! Go hug a farmer today….they need it!
