Thanks to farmers

Included in today's issue of The Leader-Union is a special section called "Salute to Agriculture 2010.

In that section, brought to you by several of the leading ag-related businesses, we highlight the many contributions of our farmers.

In a county like Fayette, it's hard to overestimate the impact of agriculture on our local economy. In most years, the fortunes of our farmers have a direct impact on the health of all other aspects of our business community. The ripples are that significant.

As we observe National Agriculture Week, we tip our hat to the men and women who till the soil and raise the livestock on our county's farms. It's a tough life, but one with plenty of rewards. Thanks.
