Everett Griner talks about rural living not being so bad in today’s Agri View.
Do you know how many counties there are in America? I do. 4,180. I didn’t count them. The Department of Agriculture did. They did it to categorize them. There are more urban counties than any other kind. But the second most is agriculture. There are 391 counties in this country that depend on agriculture to sustain them. To keep their economy going. Overall farm counties have lost population since the year 2000. Not so many people but then household income has gone up slightly in most of them. Now counties classified as manufacturing counties took the lead in 2007. But they were hard hit by the recession that followed. So, I guess it is easy to say that living in farm country isn’t so bad, is it?
That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner.
