How To Farm Videos Released by USFRA- See Them Here

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 13:22:57 CST

How To Farm Videos Released by USFRA- See Them Here Over a thousand cows milked. 50,000 eggs gathered. Clean barns for 7,000 pigs. One day's work for America's farmers! People can now learn how they do it through U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance's (USFRA) new online "How To Farm" video series that launched today on USFRA's website, FoodDialogues.com.



Hosted by blogger Kelly Snyder (ReDefinedMom.com), USFRA's online video series illustrates different farming practices. The educational videos, which range between two to four minutes, highlight the daily activities of farmers and ranchers across the nation who grow and raise our food. The first four videos give viewers an up-close look at just how farmers grow and raise food, including:   



How To Milk 1,200 Cows (filmed with Brian Rexing at New Generation Dairy in Indiana)

How To Care for 7,000 Pigs (filmed with Art Braundmeier at The Maschhoffs in Illinois)

How To Use Trash to Help Crops Grow (filmed on Len Corzine's farm in Illinois)

How To Gather 50,000 Eggs A Day (filmed with Ron Campbell at Opal Foods in Missouri)

We have the four videos all embedded below.

"People know what farmers generally do, but not exactly how they do it. The opportunity to spend time on a farm alongside a farmer is not one that most people get," said Randy Krotz, CEO of USFRA. "This new online video series brings the farm to your living room, office, kitchen, classroom, mobile device -- anywhere you are. Americans have so many questions about food production and the first videos in this series can help address some of those by showing just how farmers are growing and raising food."


The Redefined Mom, AKA Kelly Snyder, a blogger mom of two based in Kansas City, visited four Midwest farms to learn just how farmers and ranchers do what they do every day - and why. The videos also highlight new technology used on farms and ranches today, and address common misconceptions about food production.



USFRA's online video series is available at the USFRA's website by clicking here.
