On day 19, our 30 day challenge of what farmers do after the harvest takes us back to the old school today, back to college.1399673_10152050397249248_1678663691_o

Surprise, many farmers are college graduates, and once in a while they get back to support their old college.  Now the picture above is not from my college, but from my wife’s college where we gathered for a library fundraiser.174863_16361359247_1870142455_qBoth of our families have members who are graduates of GAC in St. Peter, MN.  Me?  I’m a Golden Gopher from the College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences.

UnknownNow not all farmers take the opportunity to go to college, but I did, and you will find many others like me out on the farms and ranches of our country.  Agriculture is big business after all, and a better understanding of what you are doing is important even on the farm.

So next time you are looking for a farmer after harvest is done, don’t be surprised to find him on a college campus.  He may be there visiting family, taking part in a fundraiser or enjoying a game, no matter what, he is there to support the old school.
