Maybe the best part of being an agricultural editor is the opportunity to visit farmers and the folks who support them. Every year we meet new people who are committed to producing the food and fiber we rely on. We also look forward to catching up with farmers and ranchers, Extension specialists, researchers, and industry representatives we’ve known for years.
As 2016 draws to a close, we want to thank all the farmers and other valuable sources who took time to talk to us this year and trusted us to tell their stories. We know we’ll miss a few and apologize in advance for any oversights. But to all of you who shared a bit of information or agreed to have a photo taken, thank you for your contributions, and we wish you the happiest of holidays and a New Year that’s better than the old one.
