“One of the best things about being a farmer is getting to be outside and experience great sunsets every evening,” said Chad, the #YieldStrong grand prize winner. “Our contest entry came from one of those amazing nights when you’re extra blessed to be a farmer working in your fields. Thank you for giving us the chance to share our experience with everyone.”
“Every field along with every growing season is different, and 2018 was no exception,” said Dawn Dietz, Golden Harvest marketing manager. “Although many farmers faced tough conditions this year, we’re thrilled to see how farmers were able to #YieldStrong with Golden Harvest.”
