“I’ve never met a farmer that I didn’t like.”

— Randall Reeder as Will Rogers

In this episode of the No-Till Farmer Influencers & Innovators podcast, brought to you by Source By Sound Agriculture, No-Till Legend and former Ohio State Extension ag engineer Randall Reeder talks about his secondary career portraying the old pop culture icon Will Rogers.   

Many people remember Will Rogers for his Hollywood movie stardom or his popular radio broadcasts, but in this podcast episode, Reeder highlights what connects Will Rogers to no-till farming and other conservation agriculture practices. Plus, Reeder recalls the times when he portrayed Will Rogers at the National No-Tillage Conference more than a decade ago.

If you are interested in more no-till history, you’ll find great stories like these and many more in the newly released 448-page second edition of From Maverick to Mainstream: A History of No-Till Farming that includes 32 more pages than the first edition. Order your copy here.
