What a Week!

It's been a wild, but very fun week. Last week we were in Indianapolis, IN for the national FFA convention. This was the second year that I had the opportunity to attend and I was even more impressed with the quality of the students that were there. The next generation that will become involved in agriculture will definitely be prepared for the challenges ahead of them.

Today we are in Charleston, WV to speak to the West Virginia Conservation Partnership Conference. It will be fun and exciting to visit with these folks today and let them know about the important role they play in promoting modern production agriculture. All of us realize that the soil is one of our greatest natural resources and that we have a common goal protecting it so that we can raise our food.

There is one last thing I want to mention. Please pray for good harvesting weather for everyone. So many of us are struggling to get the crops out of the fields and is adding to the already stressful job of harvest. When times like these come along, we all need to rely on our faith. So please remember our farmers in your daily prayers.

Have a great week!
