Learning a ton from this show! It’s great to hear first hand from farmers and ranchers.
Straight from farmers and ranchers
I enjoy hearing from leaders in agriculture from across many sectors, but the most interesting is hearing from U.S. farmers and ranchers. These men and women are the generational leaders of stewardship and it's interesting to hear how they practice sustainability, both in good times and bad.
I love hearing straight from the farmer.
