Video contest kicks off Agriculture Day

In celebration of National Agriculture Day Saturday, the Utah Department of Agriculture is kicking off its Real Talk from Real Farmers video contest. Real Talk invites Utah farmers and ranchers to document, through videotape, how they produce our food and fabric and care for the land and animals at the same time. The contest asks farmers or ranchers to videotape a short “day in the life” segment showing how they care for their land and animals and then submit the video to the agency. The top 10 entries will receive an invitation by Commissioner of Agriculture and Food, Leonard Blackham, to a Thanksgiving celebration in November. Blackham says the goal is to help Utahns understand where their food comes from by seeing and hearing directly from Utah farmers and ranchers. More information about the video contest is available
