The Future of Farming

My background and career have been dedicated to agriculture, so I am pleased to see this video. Even if you don’t know a lot about modern-day farming, you still might find this John Deere video interesting.  It is an outstanding presentation of where Agriculture, Precision Ag and Farming Technology is heading. Turn on your speakers so you can listen as you watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEh5-zZ9jUgSee More

I'm so happy that you have written this book about your Dad. I am anxious to read it. Doc was such a handsome man and a really GOOD person! He and my Dad had such sweet dispositions!  I miss them!

Johnny....I didn't realize you lost your dad by such an unnecesary way.  I think it's great that you have shared the story with others.  Toni said to pass on her regards, and please give Karen a hug for me.
