BOZEMAN -- A documentary film that takes an intimate look at the lives of six young farmers and ranchers will be shown on Wednesday, March 18, at Montana State University.

The film titled “Farmland” will begin at 7 p.m. in room 339 of Leon Johnson Hall. Free to the public, the event is tied to National Ag Day and organized by the Collegiate Young Farmers and Ranchers Club at MSU.

“Farmland,” which was produced by James Knoll, gives viewers a look into a high-risk, highly rewarding way of life that has been passed down through generations. The documentary features a fourth-generation poultry farmer from Georgia, a first-generation vegetable farmer from Pennsylvania, a fourth-generation hog farmer from Minnesota, a sixth-generation cattle rancher from Texas, a fifth-generation corn and soybean farmer from Nebraska, and a fourth-generation vegetable farmer from California.
