I feel as if I have disappeared from the blogging world the last 4 days or so. I am terribly sorry for that! I really haven’t and I have lots of really great future posts done, except I need to add pictures…which could be entertaining. I do really great writing blogs, but the whole adding pictures into the mix gets me nearly every time!
Anyway, update on farm status…The weather is still…rainy, sunny, rainy, sunny…You get the picture. So, things have really been all about odd jobs around our farm, but my farmer did take some time off to attend a USMEF Board Meeting in Washington D.C. last week. USMEF stands for U.S. Meat Export Federation.
He actually got to hear a lot of really great speakers and was constantly hearing “Oh my gosh I love your wife’s blog!” or “Your Morgan’s husband right?” or he got a kick out of being referred to as a “CommonGround Husband”. Thank you to all my loyal readers!
When we first got married he said he didn’t know why he went anywhere without me anymore because if he left me at home all anyone ever did was ask questions about me anyway!
Now he claims that he can’t even go to the east coast without everyone asking about me. But, I will add he says it with a smile and a twinkle in his eyes that says he loves me and is proud of me.
Anyway, when he was summing up his trip earlier this evening he had a fun filled fact I thought I would share with all of you.
Most pork we export to Mexico actually gets ground up with their own pork before they sell it to consumers.
I thought that was kind of a tip of that hat to the pork farmers!
Also, another fun filled fact.
We do not currently export any beef into China, but there is such a high demand for American beef in China they are working on current exporting options.
Both of these facts make me feel that much prouder of all American farmers.
As farmers we aim to feed our families and our nation first, but in creating these ties with other countries we can feed the world.
