How Environmental Factors Affect The Human Race And The Animal World
Here is to better intentions. We were driving to Dodge yesterday and my wife and I were talking about how things were just better back in "the good ole days". How people were better people, how animals seemed to be better and that conversation has inspired this show and post, so here we go.
If you are involved in agriculture think about this one. Production has went up across the board in our industry. Yields on grains have skyrocketed in the past 20 years. Milk production has went up in dairies. Genetics have changed and animals grow faster and more efficiently. All these changes have been good in my opinion. They had to be made so we could continue to feed the ever growing world. But to get these gains we have also lost some things as well. Animals are not as sound as they used to be. Their productive lives are shortened. Even a lot of all natural layer operations that have their flocks outside on grass are only keeping them for one year because their egg production starts to decline after that.
Now think about the same thing in the human race today. We are generally weaker then we use to be. Everything offends us. Peoples opinions make us run for safe spaces with crayons, a blanket and a cookie. Nobody wants to work hard or stand up for what we know is right.
