Radio Spot

If you live in farm country, you may listen to a few radio stations that give the market prices during the noon news report or play commercials sponsored by the county/state Farm Bureau.

Ever wonder who voices those???

Well, wonder no more!! Two of the voices on this commercial are people who have blogged or been blogged about.

Give up?

Even if you haven't given up, I'll give you the answer: it's my dad and me! We were given the opportunity to be a part of this, thanks primarily to who we know, as well as what we know!

However, my quest to learn more about all things agricultural has lead me to read more and more about this farming biz. I have come to realize that there are a lot of folks out there who are doing great things for agriculture. They write, speak, present, and just do a great job advocating for agriculture. Those in leadership positions, as well as those with loud voices (ha, ha) tell all "ag-vocates," new and old, to get their voices heard. Tell the story of farm life as you live it. Let people know that if they eat, they are involved in agriculture (thanks for that phrase, my dear DeAnna).

I am hopeful the experiences I write about can be somewhat entertaining, while also educating myself and others about agriculture. There have to be more people than me who need more information on this seemingly and stereotypically "simple" farming lifestyle!!

Thanks for reading, and enjoy my commercial debut!!
