Farm Progress America, August 31, 2022

Max Armstrong looks at the opportunities and challenges of agriculture, and notes if times are tough asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness.

Max Armstrong shares some thoughts from Jennifer Carrico, editor, Wallaces Farmer, looking at all the technology available at the Farm Progress Show. Yet she shared that farmers are also fighting challenges on the farm, but they step up and make it happen. Jennifer quotes the Lee Brice song “The Farmer.” But Max also adds that sometimes farmers must show they’re tough, unwilling to reach out for help if needed.
