Friday Agriculture Factoid

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, Spring is the peak season for foaling. This year, the PA thoroughbred horse racing industry is anticipating the birth of 1,200 to 1,400 foals and the harness racing industry expects 1,000 standardbred foals. PA is home to more than 600 farms breeding racehorses, including the world’s largest standardbred farm, Hanover Shoe Farms in York Co.

just curious - from whence comes the "Friday Agriculture Factoid" - ie, why agriculture (not industrial, or aquatic, etc) and while I'm at it, why Friday?
