October 19, 2011 - Strength Behind Voices of Agriculture

"Strength Behind Voices of Agriculture"

Originally aired on the RFD-TV Network October 19, 2011

In this episode, Farm Bureau's Voices of Agriculture host Reggie Hall talks with state and agricultural leaders across South Carolina to examine how articulate our voice is as an industry, what we can do to amplify that voice and what those leaders see for the future of agriculture to the state of South Carolina.  We interview some of the state's leading business leaders and politicans, some of which include the state's Governor, Nikki Haley and Speaker of the House, Bobby Harrell.

Our Farmer Outstanding in the Field is Representative Harry Ott, which is befitting to this episode, as he is not only one of South Carolina's House members, but he is also the only full time farmer in the State House.  See how Rep. Ott manages both jobs while carrying the message of importance and influence of agriculture.
