August 31, 2011 - Sports Turf
Originally aired on the RFD-TV Network August 31, 2011
In this episode, Farm Bureau's Voices of Agriculture host Reggie Hall focuses on the foundational role agriculture plays in sports. We'll talk "turf" with two of the Palmetto State's leading universities, University of South Carolina and Clemson University, about the round-the-clock maintance job performed on their athletic fields.
We also visit the Esso Club, a Clemson landmark where you can grab a meat and three for lunch or gather with friends for games.
Our Farmer Outstanding in His Field is Farm Bureau member Gary Youmans from Green Acres Turf Farm in Furman, SC. We talk with Gary about how he and his family provide premium turf grasses for homes, commercial, and sports landscapes.
