What do you think of when you hear the word "farmer" or "farming"? This talk dispels the notion of a farmer as a "simple land laborer", and shares the idea that the modern farmer is far more than meets the eye. AGvocate Michelle Grainger isn't a farmer of crops, but rather a farmer of ideas and teaches farmers or food and fiber how to best apply 21st century business practices to their farms operations. Listen and learn of the various roles the modern farmer assumes in the course of one day, and gain a greater understanding of their often overlooked and misunderstood importance. From their part in bringing food to market and the imperative role they play to national security, the modern farmer is worth a closer look.
