“Losing Ground”

 

I am pleased and proud to have some of my poetry as a part of this moving and powerful documentary from the American Angus Association.

 

                                                           “Losing Ground”

 

Farmers and ranchers across the country are dealing with increasing urbanization of rural America. With that urbanization brings challenges and opportunities. Hear from five Angus farm and ranch families, including: Lovin family, Lexington, Georgia; Marsh family, Huntley, Illinois, Stabler family, Brookeville, Maryland; and the Cropp family, Damascus, Maryland, about how urban sprawl has impacted them and American Farmland Trust CEO John Piotti about the issue as a whole. The American Angus Association® is proud to present the first film to expose the impact of urban sprawl on American Agriculture – “Losing Ground”—an I Am Angus production.

    • I think I can be objective. Most of us making a living on the ground don’t see very far beyond the nearest town, but to see the figures and landscape changes all across the nation is shocking–it opened my mind.
