Autumn is a wonderful time of year as the frantic pace of harvest winds down, and we can reflect on another season of abundant effort. The important work of farmers and ranchers is not always easy, as we saw in 2016. Mother Nature presented countless challenges, from hurricanes to floods to severe drought. Commodity markets added another layer of challenges, as prices remained low throughout most of the year, creating severe economic headwinds for many. However, it's years like 2016 where farmers and ranchers show their true colors, as resilience reigns and the hard work of production agriculture continues to be the woven into this great nation, serving as the backbone of our country.
