Protect the Harvest

Original article from Hoosier Ag Today

Last week I wrote about how agriculture needs to draw a line in the sand and stand up against certain forces bent on its destruction.  I got a few e-mails in support of that position, most thanking me for standing up for agriculture.

Since the inception of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions Tour, the Super Farm Tractor title has been claimed by a competitor from the state of Wisconsin.  The Badger State has been known for their potent contingent of tractors that represent the Cheesehead fans across the state.  The streak of titles ranged six consecutive years, but it came to a screeching halt in 2012.  Enter Clay Darnell to the mix, a youngster from the Bluegrass state of Kentucky, who was primed to make a run at bringing the coveted title home to the family shop in Cynthiana.  Darnell under the tutelage of his father had a career year on the circuit, where he collected his first ever Champions Tour event win in Fairfield, Illinois.  "Winning at Fairfield was incredible, but the win ended up doing some engine damage and I was worried we were done," stated Clay.
