Favorite song for in the field: "I don't really listen to the radio, but the constant rhythm of the baler plunging or the Granger Smith song, 'Backroad Song."

Favorite Midland product for planting season: "We use the Midland handheld walkies as well as the MXT in my bailing tractor. Planting season isn't something we do a ton of as hay farmers, but we'll be putting in oats in February, followed by corn silage in May."

Farm type: Wheat, corn, and cotton

Favorite song for in the field: Sports talk radio

Favorite part of planting season: "My favorite part about planting season is that it is the start of endless possibilities for that year on the farm."
