A lot of farmers are taking to the airwaves in a variety of ways to share their story. The latest YouTube hit is this new music video from the Midwest Dairy Association, featuring 65 dairy farmers from across the Midwest as they put their spin on the Beach Boys’ song, “Good Vibration.”
With almost 20,000 hits in three days the music video used dozens of dairy farmers between the ages of 1 and 81 to create the video, which included a variety of dance numbers.
Its not as catchy as some other pro-agriculture music video parodies like “I’m Farming and I Grow It” which propelled Peterson Farm Brothers into the national spotlight which they followed with “Farmer Style,” a parody of PSY’s “Gangnam Style” (now viewed by 8.4 million and 12.9 million people worldwide respectively).
But is does show very clearly that farmers are just everyday people with families and businesses to run and they love what they do and they are proud to tell the world about it
