I am thoroughly excited that our high school agricultural program made the news with the article "Northern Burlington High School agriscience program turns students into farmers"
yet I cringe at the title. I believe in production agriculture as it
is the foundation of all of our food and fiber needs. I know the vital
importance of the farmer in the agriculture industry. I am concerned
that in the United States we have an ever aging population of farmers.
However, our program does so much more than "turn students into farmers"
and the article even addressed that.
