MSGA president profiled in NewsNation documentary

The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association will have a national spotlight on Turkey Day.

As families across the nation prepare for the holidays, NewsNation Documentaries has announced the premiere of “Harvest,” a two-hour documentary dedicated to the American farmer that will air Thanksgiving night, Thursday, Nov. 24, from 7-9 p.m. CST. .

MSGA President Bob Worth and his wife, Gail, and son, Jon, will be one of the American farm families featured in the program. Bob has farmed in Lincoln County on his family operation for more than 50 years. He’s hoping his praise of MSGA’s grassroots advocacy efforts made the final cut.

“The (film crew) spent a lot of time with us over two days in October,” Worth said. “It was a fun experience and we’re excited to watch the program as a family.”

Produced by NewsNation Documentaries, the cable news network’s documentary unit, “Harvest” celebrates the vital role farmers play in American life and underscores the major challenges they face in the years ahead, with issues ranging from extreme weather and foreign competition to labor concerns and more.

“Preparing the Thanksgiving table requires a lot of work. While it ends in the kitchen it all begins on the farms and in the fields of America,” said Sean Compton, president of the Networks division of Nexstar Media Group, Inc. “Harvest will give viewers an appreciation for the dedication and work ethic of farmers across our nation.”

Filmed this fall in Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota, “Harvest” brings viewers inside the fence to meet American farm families and experience the fall harvest season up close.  “Harvest” tells the story of generational farm families in the American Midwest.
