In today’s livestock marketing world, it is all about the picture. Did you get the shot? That one magical picture can fuel a sale or drive a new sire to stardom.
And yes, unfortunately, there have been some doctored pictures. As the industry continues to respond to those magical images, this is not a new thing.
Back in 1888, a magazine was launched that used stellar photography to bring images from around the world. Science, geography, cultures, religions and most of all–animals. Most people have an image of what a National Geographic picture looks like.
And they are still bringing it today. I still subscribe to the magazine, even though I could do without their ever-leaning political stances that they push in each article. I may get bored with some of the articles in each issue but I still peruse the magazine and look at each picture. And this month did not disappoint. Pg. 144. A picture of two giraffes. The kind of picture that makes you go “Is that two different, how the heck…dang that’s a heckuva good picture.”
For a bonus, there is an article about Antarctica with lots of pictures of penguins. Pg. 122 looks like it could be a buffet. Yes, I still think a penguin looks tasty.
Have a good one and a better tomorrow.
