Every day, more than 65 million people log in to harvest their virtual crops on the popular Facebook application "Farmville." The Animal Agriculture Alliance recently released a video designed to help online farmers learn what it really takes to feed the world. In Farmville, pink cows produce strawberry milk and soybeans take only two days to grow. "The Real Farmville" helps viewers understand the important role that farmers and ranchers play in providing a safe, affordable, and plentiful food supply.

The video, which already has been viewed 2,000 times, was released on November 24 to coincide with a nationwide grassroots online campaign by agriculture advocates that urged consumers to "Thank a Farmer" for providing their holiday meal.
