Mike Rowe: Speaking For Agriculture, and Hard Work

I’ve written about Mike Rowe, host of the television program Dirty Jobs, before; I’m a big fan of his call for a renewed respect for the value of hard work and doing “dirty jobs.” Rowe, speaking to our colleague Mike Adams of AgriTalk, said this week “Every single decent job that I’ve ever seen — and we’ve done 250 on the show — is in some way is tied to the only two industries that truly matter, which are mining and agriculture. Every job, if you trace it back, has roots in one of those two industries.”



Rowe spoke at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis last month, and the organization posted excerpts of his keynote address online this week.
