The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. — Socrates _______________________ A simple blend of past and present in the heart of the heartland. ________________________ #thisisiowa #highlightiowa #iowagram #onlyiniowa @capture_iowa @515grammers #ig_iowa #nocoastcollective #iowafarmer #iowafarm #ia_ag #iowaag #farm #farmer #farming #country_features #agdaily @iowa_agriculture @agriculture_worldwide #american_agriculture_ @usa_agriculture @rsa_rural_ @rsa_country @trb_rural #farmcountry #ruralexposures #harvest #harvesting #harvestiniowa #harvestseason #corn #cornfiled #agphotography #agriculturephotography #igersmidwest #wildruralcollective #hey_ihadtosnapthat #everything_imaginable_ @cpcollectives @cpcreatives

As I am reflecting back on the Sustainable Agriculture Summit, I am trying to focus on my biggest takeaway. — Sustainable agriculture is about more than just the carbon footprint at the farm. It is so much more complex than that. It is about the entire sustainable food system. We need to look at environmental impacts, food security, biodiversity, culturally acceptable, accessibility, affordable food, nutritional food, safe, healthy, and so on. — I hear time and time again how a "plant based" diet is better for the environment. Where is the proof? Because the truth is if every American adopted a plant based diet we would only reduce our carbon footprint by about 2%. But what people forget to mention is that with a plant based diet we would have to increase the production of synthetic fertilizers. Also a plant based diet is not accessible to everyone and the quality of plant protein is lower than animal protein. — See, it's not that simple? So instead of talking about elimination diets, let's start focusing on the bigger picture of working together to tackle this enormous task of creating a sustainable food system. — I would love to hear your thoughts as I work on writing a blog to summarize the Summit. #sustainableag
