Daylight Savings Time–The Great Debate

On Sunday, November 6, 2016, in the U.S., clocks are turned back an hour. This is Daylight Savings Time, also referred to as “Fall Back” or “Winter Time.” Expect sunrise and sunset to be about an hour earlier, and more light in the morning.


Over 70 countries use Daylight Saving Time.

Main reasons include:
Conserving energy by utilizing more natural light, rather than artificial light.
Decreasing road accidents because roads are naturally during heavy traffic hours.

Dairy farmers often protest that changing our clocks an hour twice a year makes milking cows and getting the milk collected in time is a challenge. Although our modern dairy farms oftentimes utilize robots for cow milking, farmers in developing countries are affected.

What are your thoughts about Daily Savings Time? Is it time to fall back?
