Confessions of a Farm Wife: Vol. 7

We're back around the kitchen counter, re-capping Emily's experience as a Commodity Classic panelist, and talking spring weather...and mud...and the Farmland film.

Well. Our schedules have been a little crazy lately. And so it is that we are now re-capping Emily's experience as a panelist for the Bayer Ag Issues Forum at Commodity Classic...which was back in late February. But she had a fascinating experience, fielding questions from agricultural media and more.

And so here it is. A little talk about the travel, the speaking, the issues, and our random run-in at Gate B26 in the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. Proof positive, you have to leave western Illinois to run into your one-county-away neighbors. And a re-cap of my interviews with the farmer stars of the USFRA-funded Farmland film, just released for film festivals and in theaters next month.

L to R: Holly Spangler, Emily Webel, DeAnna Thomas
