I have a notebook full of gratitude for you this week.
I spent three days at the Big Iron Farm Show in West Fargo. It was the 42nd annual event this year and it attracts a huge crowd from across the Northern Plains and always a few international visitors as well. City folks tend to take our farmers and ranchers for granted, disregarding the enormous amount of risk and uncertainty they need to navigate whatever market forces and the weather throw their way. And without them, we don’t eat. They feed the world. Their entrepreneurial spirit takes what comes and they get up every day and do the job. I’m grateful for our farmers and ranchers!
