Did you know that chickens will peck each other to death, if they get the opportunity? Canadian chickens are not fed hormones. There is no such thing as a factory farm. That term was created by non-farmers. It takes ten goats to give the same amount of milk as one cow. Male calves are raised with great care and only shipped to market as veal when they reach between 4-700 pounds.
Did you know that the $15.00 or so that we pay for a chicken dinner gives a farmer only a dollar?When food prices go up, the farmer’s share does not? Farmers need to eat, and so do we. They care about their animals and their crops. And if we want to keep eating, we need to care about farmers, farming, and the truth about both.
Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah… And he had farmers and vinedressers in the hills and in the fertile fields [of Carmel], for he loved farming. (2 Chronicles 26:1, 10b, AMP)
Prayer – God, we pray fine weather and good crops for all the farmers who provide our food on a daily basis. Amen
