Veterans who grow birds for Sanderson Farms share wisdom
Each year, roughly 200,000 men and women leave U.S. military service and return to life as civilians. Nearly one in four veterans live in rural America, with some states seeing more than 60 percent of their veterans returning home to rural areas. As these former U.S. military members look to integrate their unique skills and experiences into a civilian career, many have found opportunities in agriculture. Currently, 370,019 veterans are using their knowledge and skills to serve as farmers and ranchers across America.
