Ed McBroom is both a senator and dairy farmer who hails from Vulcan, in the U.P. Listen as he speaks candidly about playing Rachmaninov, directing the Norway City Band, how farming and family intertwine, and what a perfect day on the farm looks like to him.

He covers:

  • How politics, teaching, and farming all come together
  • How his wonderful family, colleagues, and staff are helping him through a difficult year
  • Robots and footbaths for cows
  • The amount of rocks in their soil, and why his Swedish ancestors picked their spot
  • How much crop damage one bear can do
  • Why people should be a part of their community, and not just online
  • Where you might find a spouse that wants to farm
