H IS FOR HAY — AN A TO Z ABOUT AGRICULTURE

Tuesday's Blog Highlight: Janice Person - A Colorful Adventure

Janice Person's real job is 'photography',she travels the world for pleasure, and is a self acclaimed 'city girl.' She shares her life experiences and passion for agriculture using social media and her blog - A Colorful Adventure. She recently started a new series of blog posts called the "A to Z about Agriculture." Everyday, she takes a letter of the alphabet and uses it to describe an important aspect of agriculture. She's on letter 'H', so stay tuned and follow her updates all the way through 'Z'! Be sure to Follow JPLovesCotton on Twitter and Facebook! A few people suggested I write about hay today, including my dear friend Mona who left the most encouraging comment on the post for G is for GMO. The reason it means so much is for Mona and I, it took a little time for us to find common ground. We could have easily decided the differences in some of our ideas were more important, but we continued talking through Twitter and blogs and found we have a lot of commonground. I LOVE how social media can do that! So if Mona wants me to write about hay, well, buckle your seat belts cause we’re headed to the hay field! (I just hope it isn’t a really bumpy ride!)

Oh, and by types of hay, I don’t just mean it comes in both round and square bales! And then as I started to learn about what cows eat, I found our the nutritional differences can be significant and that nutritionists and/or vets are a critical component as farmers look at livestock feed.
