American Farm Bureau FederationI’ve been meaning to post something about America’s Heartland but just never seem to have a good opportunity. However, American Farm Bureau sent out a release about their celebration of the premier of the show. They, along with Monsanto, are the 2 main sponsors.

The recent premiere of America’s Heartland, a new national public television series on American agriculture, was celebrated Wednesday at a screening and reception at the American Farm Bureau Federation headquarters. AFBF and Monsanto are providing major sponsorship of the weekly series, which is shot on location on farms and ranches across the country and will consist of 20 half-hour original programs during the first season. Public television station KVIE of Sacramento produces the series.

“To all of us involved in the miracle of American agriculture, the new America’s Heartland public television series represents a precious opportunity,” said AFBF President Bob Stallman. “America’s Heartland is about our love for the land, our dedication to the production of food and fiber and our focus on the fundamental American values of family, hard work and independence,” said Stallman.
