COLCHESTER, Vt. (AgPR) — American Agri-Women (AAW) President Karolyn Zurn applauds farmers and ranchers, especially AAW members and their families, for their resiliency during this unexpected pandemic. Our country is going through some very trying times due to the COVID-19 virus. Even though the economics of the situation has hit many aspects of agriculture hard, rest assured the American farmer/rancher is still working diligently. Whether it is the dairy or grain farmer, livestock rancher, hog producer, or fruits and vegetable growers, we are all continually striving and bringing forth safe and healthy products for the American consumer. After all, it is the same products they feed their families.
American beef, pork, poultry, grain, and dairy farmers supply family meals with high sources of protein. This is in addition to the many vitamins, minerals, and nutrients necessary for balanced diets, proper nutrition, and the growth of children and maintenance of adults. Fresh vegetables, fruits, and nuts add fiber, antioxidants, healthy fats, and improve brain function in all ages.
The US food supply is not something to take lightly, nor the families that produce it. Each day they are working for their family and our Nation to make sure everyone has the options to meet the dietary needs required to be healthy. Understanding where and how your food is produced and processed and makes its way to the consumer is more important now, more than ever. Please help support American Agri-Women as we continue to #StandUpSpeakOut4Ag.
