A Word from Wyoming

Feb 17, 2011

   I live on the fringes of U.S. agriculture, in the evening shadow of the Wyoming’s Wind River Mountains.  At 5,400 feet, we don’t raise corn and soybeans.  Rather, Miller-Coors malt barley, sugar beets and alfalfa hay.  A long way from markets, we joke that to survive, we have to farm twice as well as anyone else, to pay the freight both ways.  The cost of inputs in, and the cost of outputs out.   I very much enjoy watching your show in the morning as I prepare and eat breakfast.  I feel it gives me a broad perspective on U.S. and world agriculture.  The diversity of global agricultural pursuits is what makes our industry so fascinating, as you so ably demonstrate each morning. 

   Also, at age 64, your Legacy project is of interest.  I have a son who returned from college a few years ago.  It’s given me a new lease on life.  It is good to be thinking about expansion again, rather than retirement.

Keep up the good work,
Richard Klein
