Farmers in America's Midwest and South suffered every kind of bad weather imaginable in 2011. While they toiled to earn a living and help feed the country, Mother Nature worked to tear down everything they were building up.
"AGAINST THE GRAIN: THE YEAR MOTHER NATURE STRUCK BACK" is a riveting one hour television special that dramatically recounts the saga of farm families trying to survive one of the most challenging growing seasons in modern history.
Produced by Emmy Award winning Weller/Grossman Productions, this special uses
on-the-scene footage, extreme weather coverage, and heart-wrenching first
person confessionals intercut with expert weather and financial experts in an
intense and compelling dramatic format.
"AGAINST THE GRAIN: THE YEAR MOTHER NATURE STRUCK BACK"
brings the realities of American farmers and ranchers into the living rooms
of KDLT-TV viewers on Sunday September 9th and 23rd at 11AM and October 7th, 14th and 21st at 12PM.
