Card #17, Such a Pretty Face...

As far as I can tell, this postcard comes from the town of Papendrecht in the Netherlands. Because Wikipedia doesn't have much to say about this small town, I will talk about Dutch agriculture instead, in the spirit of the postcard I received. The Netherlands ranks third worldwide in the value of agricultural exports, behind the US and France. Much of that value comes from fresh-cut flowers and bulbs. Tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers are also big business. The cow on this postcard is a Holstein cow, a breed that was developed in the Netherlands. Dairy farming is an important part of Dutch agriculture. This card arrived after 4 days on October 10 from user maroni.
