“God Made a Farmer” Video Salutes Dairy Farmers
One of the standout commercials of Super Bowl XLVII was an emotional ad for the Dodge Ram called “God Made a Farmer.” Narrated by legendary broadcaster Paul Harvey, many were moved by Harvey’s essay on the virtues of the American farmer, which he delivered to the Future Farmers of America (FFA) in 1978. It says:
“God said, ‘I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board.’ So God made a farmer.”
The Ram brand will make a donation to support FFA and assist in local hunger and educational programs when you share a badge from their website on your social media. Help Ram raise $1 million to support FFA! Watch the Dodge Ram “God Made a Farmer” commercial below:
