Texas, Off the Beaten Path

I have driven by this spot on US Hwy 67 between Alvarado, Texas and Venus, Texas, for nearly ten years now. It has been used for growing hay during that entire time. No fences, no cattle, nothing. Then a few years ago, this sign popped up at the edge of the highway and since that time, it has always made me wonder. Is the feed company owner proud of their heritage? Was it a hasty decision on a company name? Or did they hire a really bad public relations and advertising firm? One of those things that make you go, hmmmmmm????
