No arms, no legs; no problem for Canada farmer Chris Koch
I’ve been busy lately getting registered and booking my flights for the 19th annual Ag Media Summit in Snowbird, Utah in July. The largest gathering of crop and livestock media professionals in the U.S. offers several opportunities for professional improvement and industry networking, and the chance to meet extraordinary individuals like … Chris Koch.
As I reflected on last year’s Ag Media Summit in St. Louis, I thought about the rare opportunity I had to chat with this truly inspirational farmer from Alberta, Canada. Koch is a motivational speaker who was born without arms and legs, but that hasn’t stopped him from snowboarding, surfing, working on a farm, and traveling the world. If you haven’t heard Koch speak or seen his ‘If I Can’ story, here is the segment that aired on the Oprah Winfrey channel in 2014.
