I think that Dodge may have sold several farm trucks tonight.. and I did like the Budweiser "brotherhood" add a lot too. With ads about a goat, horses and a tribute to the farmer this may have been Agriculture's Superbowl

The party I was at, it just got quiet until the commercial was over. The only time all afternoon it was quiet.

As  my mother God rest her soul would say, "That's what it's all about!"   Good to see something good about the people that feed the world.

It's an old Paul Harvey poem, if you google Paul Harvey or "God Made a Farmer" poem, I'm sure you would find something.  My grandfather passed away 5 years ago, and as a tribute this year for Christmas, my cousins had a 5X10 foot sign printed with a picture of my grandpa laid in behind the poem.

And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God made a farmer.

 God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the field, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board." So God made a farmer.

 God said, "I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt and watch it die, then dry his eyes and say,'Maybe next year,' I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from an ash tree, shoe a horse with hunk of car tire, who can make a harness out hay wire, feed sacks and shoe scraps. Who, during planting time and harvest season will finish his 40-hour week by Tuesday noon and then, paining from tractor back, put in another 72 hours." So God made the farmer.
 
 God said, "I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bales, yet gentle enough to yean lambs and wean pigs and tend the pink-comb pullets, who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the leg of a meadowlark."

 It had to be somebody who'd plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed, and brake, and disk, and plow, and plant, and tie the fleece and strain the milk, . Somebody who'd bale a family together with the soft, strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh, and then sigh and then reply with smiling eyes when his son says that he wants to spend his life doing what Dad does. "So God made a farmer."

 (clapping)  it was great seeing this ad without sexy puns, teenage superstars, futuristic BS, and bad role models (charlie sheen for example) on such a big stage.

If you look it up on YOUTUBE you can find a longer version of it,It almost brings tears to my eyes because it reminds me of my grandpa who we lost a few years ago.

I was proud to go check for baby calves in my dodge truck this morn.!! We forget how far removed we are from the rest of society.  Ag is one of the last american industries that still produces things and make them in the USA.
