From low commodity prices to weather extremes, there are many things coming at farmers and ranchers right now. North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says there also are milestones that should be celebrated each season. “Although the work is never done, we have incremental victories here and there. You get equipment ready. You get planting done. You get spraying done. You get harvest done. At some point it all comes together.” Goehring goes on to say these small victories make them feel like they’ve accomplished something. “There are things to celebrate in agriculture. That helps. It’s like when you finish calving. When that last heifer or cow drops her calf it’s a sigh of relief. A lot of worry goes away.” Hear more from Goehring in the latest TransFARMation podcast.
