WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released a video to celebrate the wheat harvest tradition in Kansas. The video captures the long days and hard work of farmers and the individuals who support them through scenes of Central Kansas and the poem, “Wheat Harvest,” by Marjorie Maydew Bell of Smith Center.
“Wheat harvest is a special time of year across Kansas,” Sen. Moran said. “Even as it winds down, it’s notable that Kansas farmers, in fact, work year-round to put food on our tables and keep the shirts on our backs. Thank you to all the farmers and farm families who helped to make this year’s wheat harvest safe and productive.”
