Where Are You???

Published on: 09:01AM Apr 13, 2009


I've been an avid viewer of U.S. Farm Report for years on our local CBS affiliate at 6 am on Saturdays and Sundays (Ch 19 in  Charlottesville, VA). When I discovered you were on Direct TV's cable  channel 225 at 8 am EDT on Saturdays, I was delighted. The past two weeks, when I turned to channel 225, the title comes up as U.S. Farm Report but has paid programming instead. I've gone to your Web site to see if there's been a time change and can't find that.

 I'm a small Virginia farmer in my semi-retirement and a 1961 Iowa State ag journalism major. My father Dr. Louis Thompson, who will be 95 next month, was associate dean of agriculture at ISU for over 30 years and author of the largest selling agronomy text book over the past 50 years, "Soils and Soil Fertility" published by McGraw-Hill.

Can you help me?
