From steers to cows, pigs to sows, and chicks to chickens, animal ag is our country’s number #1 customer for soy,
eating 98% of U.S. soybean meal.
Of course, in the end, we humans eat the milk,
eggs and meat that these animals produce.

A farmer’s heart skips a beat when he sees
the harvest come safely in;
the grain fully stored in the silo,
the potatoes overflowing their bins,
the calf fully grown.
This is the fruit of his year’s labor,
the culmination of his plans and dreams,
and he aims for this, for harvest.
