Agriculture is truly the most important industry in the world. Having been involved in farming and custom harvesting all of my life I know that what I’ve done to help feed the world is very rewarding.

I come from a close family, I would do anything for them and I know they would do the same for me. Like my family, food and nutrition are extremely important to me. So when I saw that the theme of World Food Day 2014 is Family Farming: “Feeding the world, caring for the earth” I knew I wanted to combine my love for family and food, and write about these families and what they do for our world.

While working as head of the pediatric department at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Malawi in 1994, Dr. Mark Manary knew there had to be a better way. Only 25 percent of acutely malnourished children were surviving using the clinical-based treatment methods that relied primarily on milk. He committed medical heresy and emptied the clinic. He supplied the mothers with a peanut butter-based product called Ready-to-Use-Therapeutic Foods, or RUTF, that they could administer at home while still caring for theirother children.

I’m celebrating because dairy farming has been a way of life for me and my family for generations (link to http://thedairymom.blogspot.com/2010/12/generations-of-dairy-farmers.html). My husband and I are glad to be raising our boys on a farm (link to http://thedairymom.blogspot.com/2011/04/future-of-our-herd-calves-and-boys.html). But agriculture doesn’t only impact farm families, it’s far reaching touching everyone’s life.

What is in a number? 2, 1969, 31, 365, 7 billion: These are just numbers right? I disagree. They all have significant importance to me as an individual.
