Val and Pal

"Why do they do that?"

If you aren't a farmer or rancher, you may have asked yourself that question once or twice.

That's why North Dakota Farm Bureau produced a series of 30-second spots called, "Why do they do that with Val and Pal."

Wonder what those big white tanks are behind the tractor and seeder? Wonder how farmers decide what to plant? Learn those answers and more with Val and Pal!

We have all the spots posted here. They are in a downloadable mp3 format.
