Host and American Family Farmer Doug Stephan begins with news that the Paris Climate Agreement that President Trump backed out of, takes effect this week. Then, a damage report from last week's storms. Next, we meet Dan Erdmann - Farm Rescue Program Manager. Farm Rescue's mission is to help family farms and ranches bridge crises, so they can continue as viable operations. They provide planting, haying, harvesting and livestock feeding assistance to farm and ranch families that have experienced a major injury, illness or natural disaster. They have assisted nearly 700 farm and ranch families since their inception in 2005. The upcoming virtual Farm Rescue benefit concert, in partnership between Farm Rescue and John Deere, takes place December 9th at Brooklyn Bowl Nashville with proceeds benefiting farmers affected by Covid-19. Finally, Family Farmer Doug Stephan opines about the need for and benefits of Organic Farming and Ranching.
