The first job featured in Ag Works was harvesting cotton on the Delano Kneece Farm in Pelion. Luther Kneece
and his cousin, Ricky, and their families farm row crops and livestock,
independently and collectively.
is in Gilbert and Ricky's is in Pelion. Ricky's son, Kane, works with
his father producing row crops - peanuts, corn, and cotton specifically.
His son, J.D., raises registered Black Angus Cattle and runs commercial
herds. The Kneece family continues to work hard. Their roots run deep
in the soil tilled by their forefathers. In reality, farmers like the
Kneeces are feeding and clothing a growing population. If they don't do
what they do, there may be a time when our country imports more food and
fiber than it ships out.
No one embodies WORK more than the
farmer. If you eat at least one meal a day, sleep between cotton sheets, or
feed your pet, you depend on agriculture.
