Talk to a farmer

I am writing in support of agriculture as portrayed in Dodge Ram’s Super Bowl commercial.
The commercial featured an excerpt of a Paul Harvey speech delivered to the Future Farmers of America at the organization’s 1978 national convention.
The dialogue talks about all the hard work and long hours many farmers put in. At one point Harvey says, “. . . And who, planting time and harvest season, will finish his 40-hour week by Tuesday noon, then, pain’n from ‘tractor back,’ put in another 72 hours.”
Those long hours are not in vain though. Farmers are some of the hardest-working people anyone ever will meet.
Personally, everytime we have a calf born, it is nothing short of a miracle, and my family and I work hard to make sure that the calf grows up healthy and strong.
The agriculture industry, more than ever, is working hard to provide great-quality products. The agricultural community is committed to ensuring quality products.
Anyone with questions should feel free to ask a farmer. Farmers are more than willing to talk about what they do and how they do it.
Talking to a farmer gets information “straight from the farm.”
