Their vision is to provide industry-leading food relief to those in need while feeding them spiritually.Their story started in 2003 when the Kieser family actioned their faith to share their blessings. They turned a shed on their family farm into a distribution site for local food pantries. Soon they realized the need was more significant, and there was room for growth. Thanks to the generosity of their donors, the valuable work of volunteers, and most importantly, the blessings of God, Midwest Food Bank now shares the blessings worldwide. Midwest Food Bank currently distributes nearly $36 million worth of food to over 2,100 non-profit organizations each month. This is done from our twelve locations in Illinois, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Texas, Pennsylvania, New England, East Africa, and Haiti.Born in Central IL Karl grew up in a family of 5.

In 2017 Karl joined MFB as Operations Manager and later that same year assumed the role of Executive Director. Karl enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, and shooting. “I feel blessed to be able to live out my faith in my occupation The MFB mission of, sharing the love of Christ while alleviating hunger and malnutrition and providing disaster relief, aligns well with my faith and I am grateful to be a small part of this fantastic organization.”Scot Buss found his calling when he started working in non-profit 5 years ago.

Then last month I read an article on CropLife called “The Top 6 Questions Every Agribusiness Should Be Asking About Cyberattacks and Data Security”. As a read the six questions I thought “those are just about exactly the six questions I would want to ask a cybersecurity expert on my podcast. And the author was Mike Moore who you're about to hear from.  Mike is the Senior Vice President of the agribusiness division at Ever.Ag and has been serving as such since 1997 under the EFC Systems brand. At the start of his tenure, his initial focus was developing the technology and infrastructure services division to help guide and direct the technology needs for client partners. Although his responsibilities have broadened, he is still passionate about helping ag retailers better serve their customers in a secure and efficient way.  Before we dive in, some context: the most common type of cyber attack is what's called a ransomware attack. In this case the criminal inserts malware on your system, and is able to essentially lock it down until they are paid a ransom. The second common type of attack involves extracting data that can be sold. There's been some notable examples in recent years including JBS, which reportedly paid hackers an $11 million ransom last year. Speaking at Husker Harvest Days last month, FBI agent Eugene Kowel said an attack on a farm in January 2021 contributed to the loss of nearly $9 million. This is a real issue that everyone in ag should be vigilant about, and it seems to be getting worse.  Mike and I talk about how these attacks happen, what to watch out for, and some important tips for reducing your vulnerability.

When Terrance Crayton of the Wetumpka FFA Chapter started the small engines team as a student at the school, he just wanted to work with engines.  I doubt he knew what that was going to lead to.  When he did that, one of the people that he encouraged to join was a sophomore named Case Edwards, who happens to be today's guest.  Case took to working with engines like a duck takes to water, and it broadened Case's FFA career and put him on an unbelievable trajectory that led him to become a chapter, district and state officer as well as a National Proficiency winner in 2021. Today, Case is back on the show because now he has been nominated as an American Star Finalist in the category of Ag Placement that is a result of the work that he has done over the years in mechanics.  The jobs that Case held during this time are a direct result of him learning about small engines, and he gives a ton of credit to Terrance for that.  As Case stated during our first interview in 2021, if you had shown him a spark plug at the beginning of his sophomore year of high school, he wouldn't have known what to do with it.  Now look at him! If that story were not enough, Terrance, wasn't just a coach.  He was also a fellow student and chapter member, and he was running his own small engine business.  He competed in the FFA as well, and unbelievably he is also nominated as an American Star Finalist this year, but in the category of Agribusiness.  I will do a separate interview with Terrance, but enough cannot be stated about the fact that Case and his classmate that inspired him to try mechanics are both nominated as American Star Finalists in the same year!

REASONS TO DONATE TO FFA: Only 2% of Americans grow and raise most of the food and livestock consumed by the other 98% as well as the rest of the world.  FFA is providing the needed education, training and resources to Americans that will carry that torch forward and ensure that America continues to have inexpensive, quality food. Rural Communities will rely on entrepreneurship in the future for population growth and job creation.  The FFA is a major catalyst to that entrepreneurial growth. Farmers, ranchers, and those working in agriculture give the rest of America incredible amounts of freedom because the search for food is as simple as going to the grocery store: "Because American farmers are able to provide for so many of us, they give more and more of us the freedom to pursue goals and livelihoods beyond growing the food we need to survive."

The requirement to include scope 3 emissions would place a disproportionate burden on cattle producers whose beef is part of the supply chain for publicly traded restaurants and retailers. Additionally, the rule exposes individual producers to additional levels of legal liability.NCBA previously submitted technical comments on the rule and individual cattle producers sent over 7,406 emails to SEC commissioners and members of Congress expressing concern with rule. NCBA has encouraged the SEC to remove the requirement to disclose scope 3 emissions, which would lessen the burden on cattle producers.The National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) has represented America's cattle producers since 1898, preserving the heritage and strength of the industry through education and public policy.  As the largest association of cattle producers, NCBA works to create new markets and increase demand for beef.  Efforts are made possible through membership contributions.

Carrfields, one of the leading agricultural companies in New Zealand, has operations spanning Kiwi agriculture, from machinery to seed production and distribution, irrigation, precision ag technology and everything in between. Craig Carr, group managing director and guest on this week's Hemp Podcast, said his father started the business over 40 years ago with a handful of straw contracts in the Canterbury region of the South Island of New Zealand. Moving into machinery service and seed production in the 1990s, the business really took off in the 2000s when the Kiwi dairy industry went through a period of growth. “It was a big time in New Zealand of change, of farming. Dairy was really starting to grow,” he said. “And with that our business grew also.” This growth enabled Carrfields to acquire several other ag businesses, making them a major player in New Zealand agriculture. Carrfields has been working in the hemp sector for over 20 years, with an early focus on oil seed production and combine harvesters, and has since been working with fiber hemp for industrial uses. Carr attended the Montana Hemp Summit in August and was impressed with the level of cooperation and collaboration among the U.S. hemp industry in the grain and fiber sectors. “What probably stood out to me the most was the willingness of IND HEMP and others to actually work together for the benefit of the industry,” he said. “Even though we're way down here in New Zealand, there's a huge opportunity for us to share learnings and to actually share information around what has worked and what hasn't worked, because when you're dealing with a product like hemp — and particularly hemp fiber — you know, you're very reliant, as most people will note, on Mother Nature.” Carr said the biggest challenge the industry faces, in New Zealand and abroad, is making it profitable for producers. “Because if the crop is not sustainably profitable, then we are not going to have that supply base in the future,” he said. “We need to ensure that all of the financial metrics go back and start with the farmer.” Carrfields https://www.carrfields.co.nz/ New Zealand Natural Fibers https://nznaturalfibres.co.nz/ Connect with Carrfields on Social Media Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CarrfieldsNZ & https://www.facebook.com/contactNZNF Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/carrfieldsnz/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/carrfields-nz/ & https://www.linkedin.com/company/nz-natural-fibres Hemp News Nuggets Police Raid German Hemp Farm https://businesscann.com/european-round-up-police-raid-german-hemp-farm-tilray-in-talks-with-cannabis-czar-new-european-thc-levels-approved-et-al/ Regulations for the Production of Industrial Hemp are Established in Costa Rica https://thecostaricanews.com/regulations-for-the-production-of-industrial-hemp-are-established-in-costa-rica/ Why Hemp Is Entering the Mainstream and Adding Value to Business https://www.rollingstone.com/culture-council/articles/why-hemp-is-entering-mainstream-and-adding-value-to-business-1234588120/ National Hemp Growers Coop partners with Troy University Manufacturing Sciences https://www.wtvy.com/2022/09/08/national-hemp-growers-partner-with-troy-university-manufacturing-sciences/ National Hemp Growers Cooperative https://nationalhempcoop.us/ Billionaire No More: Patagonia Founder Gives Away the Company https://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/14/climate/patagonia-climate-philanthropy-chouinard.html Climate Projects Tied to Pennsylvania Get $900 Million https://www.lancasterfarming.com/farming-news/conservation/climate-projects-tied-to-pennsylvania-get-900-million/article_dd2cf622-3473-11ed-a221-179b31d68ee2.html Climate-Smart Commodities Grant Recipients https://www.usda.gov/climate-solutions/climate-smart-commodities/projects Thanks to our Sponsors Americhanvre Cast-Hemp https://americhanvre.com/ IND HEMP https://indhemp.com/ All Walks Hemp Pet Products https://allwalkspet.com/

Today's Ag Spotlight is on real American Heroes who help transition veterans from active service to agriculture. Tod Bunting is a retired Air Force major General – with over 30 years of service. He has devoted his post military life to veteran care. Also with us is Virgil Williams who is also a veteran and runs operations at Save Farm. SAVE Farms is a training farm for veterans of all eras and their families. A pathway to farming and healing. Americans celebrate Veterans Day on November 11 to honor our veterans' patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. While this day is a wonderful tribute, there are organizations who honor veterans every single day of the year. The SAVE Farm in Manhattan, KS., is one of them. The concept for the SAVE Farm  began nearly a decade ago, when retired Colonel Gary Lagrange and his daughter saw results from training beekeeping and providing therapy to soldiers at nearby Ft Riley. A non profit was formed by a diverse group of veterans, farm and ranch experts and educators.  With the help of organizations like The Nature Conservancy, and the Conservation Fund, the SAVE Farm is now a reality. It provides therapy as needed and hands-on teaching to veterans and transitioning service members through experienced professionals. They learn how to successfully and sustainably manage cropland, livestock animals, orchards, horticulture, and beekeeping. In 2020, SAVE celebrated a significant milestone - the purchase of 308-acres of farmland for future hands-on training. In 2021, the critical and life-changing work of the SAVE Farm received further support from John Deere through a donation of $200,000 to continue its collaboration with The Nature Conservancy and assist in the completion of training facilities.
