Agriculture is a vital part of the High Plains. It's engrained in the culture, economy, history, and environment. Agland provides farmers and ranchers news and information, and it also reflects that lifestyle out to the world.
Hosts Amy Bickel and Kathy Hanks bring you the stories of the people and small towns making a difference.
