The U.S. ranks 2nd in alfalfa exports

According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, in 2010 the United States exported 258,983 metric tonnes of alfalfa meal and pellets, or 19.8% of the world’s exports of that item. That was enough to make the United States rank  second out of eighty-six countries ranked in that category. Spain ranked first, exporting 473,004 tonnes, or 36.2% of the world’s exports.

    Who gives a damn! Why do we have to be first in everything in the world. I think that is one of our biggest problems. We need to start setting our priorities and start putting this nation first where it matters and counts. For example, how education, jobs, morality, etc. rank and how it makes for a strong and secure nation.

    Get a job Mr. Stevens, then you will see that it counts. Perhaps you will also then be too busy to read and comment on things you don’t understand. World protein sources are a growing concern for all of us. After fuel, this could be the next most important issue facing the future. Changes in the global climate have also had enormous affects on the above information; in some cases leaving entire farming and export regions out of a source of income. If America has better control of this industry we will be STRONG and SECURE. Unless you prefer the Chinese buy their alfalfa from Spain? Then who will put milllions of US farm and export family children through school. Where wil lthe taxes come from to pay for the educations. In regard to alfalfa an morals, you have me stumped on that comment.
