May 15, 2013 - Many Hats of a Farmer

"Many Hats of a Farmer"
  Originally aired May 15, 2013

 

In this episode, Farm Bureau's Voices of Agriculture host Reggie Hall delves into the diversity of roles each farmer has to play to succeed in their business and in agriculture. 

We talk with several South Carolina farmers and hear about the many occupational "hats" they choose ( or are required) to wear as family farmers.  While there are many fulltime professionals in ag-related areas, most farmers must become experts in a variety of disciplines.

We travel all across the Palmetto State to hear how the role of mechanic, meterologist, economist, businessman (or woman), veterinarian, restauranter, social media advocate, political activist and much more are just some of the hats farmers do wear.  Listen to how each farmer does more than just cultivate and grow, but how they really are a "Jack, or Jane, of all trades."
