    Thats a lot of ag info. Thanks

  2. I had to………

    fun ag fact of the day: A hamburger smothered in red or green chile is called a slopper. An Irish woman who is defined as “loose” with men is called a “Slapper”. They are often found at chipshops after nightclubs are closed eating a burger!

    fun ag fact of the day: chickens can run up to 9 miles per hour…. but not when crossing the road. In fact, they aren’t even polite enough to use signal crossing! No one knows why….

    fun ag fact of the day: Michigan and New Jersey produce 66% of all the blueberries in the United States, followed by North Carolina, Oregon and Washington. Washington’s marijuana laws will ensure that more get consumed there however, especially if there’s no fast food joint open at 2am in the morning….

    Fun ag fact of the day: The stinger is not left behind when a honeybee stings another insect. In fact, it doesn’t even leave it’s phone number, or call you later. Honeybee’s just leave me feeling used…….

    fun ag fact of the day: Heart valves from hogs are used to replace damaged or diseased human heart valves. Yet people think Hannible Lector is yucky for saying “This man tasted bacony!”

    Fun ag fact of the day: America exported $124,021,998.00 worth of dairy cow semen in 2011. It was sold on a first cum first served basis..

    Fun ag fact of the day: On average, we each consume 584 lb. of dairy products a year. This number is going to increase as soon as a Texan comes up with a way to deep fat fry an egg wrapped in cheese served in a milkshake which is then deep fat fried again! mmmMMmmm tasty!

    fun ag fact of the day: A crab’s teeth are in its stomach…. which means going to the dentist is a heck of a lot more tricky for crab people!

    fun ag fact of the day: Pigs have a great sense of smell. Their powerful but sensitive snout is a highly developed sense organ. Pigs also have a great field of vision, because their eyes are on the sides of their heads….. which means I always feel guilty around pigs when they see me coming and think “Wow… breath smells just like my brother George!……….. hmmm where is George anyway…. I haven’t seen him about lately….”

    fun ag fact of the day: Florida is the largest producer of watermelons in the United States followed by Georgia and California…. It’s been scientifically proven if you put a watermelon in a sports car with a toupe on it, there will be 4 blondes trying to chat it up in 3 minutes. Thank you Florida!

    fun ag fact of the day: Russia is the largest producer of raspberries in the world followed by Poland and Serbia….. Apparently Poland is now trying to figure out a way to mix horsemeat into the raspberries……

    fun ag fact of the day: A row of corn always has an even number…. Plus corn is responsible for aliens. Get this. ANTI GMO activists have informed me that GMO Corn is made from shark genes and if we eat GMO corn we’ll absorb shark gene’s. So… people eating GMO corn start to develope grey skin (just like sharks) & their eyes turn black (just like sharks). They also start wandering around in circles just like the way sharks swim in circles. Therefore Crop Circles in corn are actually caused by SHARK PEOPLE………. not aliens!

    fun ag fact of the day: A cow’s gestation period is approximately 283. This is the average number of days from the day a cow is bred to the time she has a calf….. For more accurate factual information about cow sexes, please watch the movie “Barnyard”

    Fun ag fact of the day: Each bottle of wine contains about 2.8 pounds of grapes…… So technically the more wine you drink, the more healthy grapes you are consuming! Also, apparently grapes can give you a headache.

    fun ag fact of the day: Sugar cane is the most produced commodity in India, Brazil, Pakistan, Mexico, Philippines, Egypt, Thailand, South Africa, Colombia, Kenya & Peru………. which is wierd, because you’d assume it was interesting exotic food. I’ve never gone to an indian restaurant to eat a bag of sugar……

    The states that produce the most sweet cherries are Washington, California, Oregon and Michigan. The main producer of tart cherries is Michigan accounting for 90% of the production…… Yet only one of these states has had a semi famous band that sang a song about cherry pies (which didn’t even feature a recipie on how to bake one!)

    fun ag fact of the day: The females of all mammal species can by definition produce milk. Aside from cattle, many kinds of livestock provide milk used by humans for dairy products. These animals include buffalo, goat, sheep, camel, donkey, horse, reindeer, yak, and dolphin. The first four respectively produced about 11%, 2%, 1.4% and 0.2% of all milk worldwide in 2011. In Russia and Sweden, small moose dairies also exist…… I’m guessing that the milking stool for a dolphin is more like a life jacket….

    fun ag fact of the day: Somalia is the largest producer of camel milk in the world followed by Mali and Ethiopia…… I’m still unsure how much milk gets put into a pack of camels, or why it doesn’t make them too soggy to smoke!

    fun ag fact of the day: Peanut butter is a staple in over 90% of American households and the average person consumes more than six pounds of peanut products each year……. which explains why the world thinks americans are so big. They aren’t big, they are just always suffering from an allergic reaction to peanuts!
