Tribute To Greatness
FARM SHOW salutes Dieter Krieg, editor-publisher of Farmshine magazine, for his creative tribute to "Liberty and AgriculturełThe Strength Of The Nation."
As everyone knows, there are neither corn fields nor cows that close to the Statue of Liberty. For that matter, there isn't even an island within such close proximity. What's really there is a shipping channel. But that, Dieter decided, wouldn't have been nearly as dramatic as a photo showing cows and a corn field in the foreground, and the Statue of Liberty in the background.
"We sincerely believe the picture has a messagełwhich is why we presented it the way we did," explains Dieter. He acknowledges the gracious cooperation of a New York family who took him on a motorboat ride around the statue for a close-up photo, and the Lindes of Southern Lancaster County, Penn., who supplied the corn field and the Guernsey heifers.
Dieter is toying with the idea of offering 4-color posters depicting the Statue of Liberty with several different dairy breeds. For Holstein enthusiasts, for example, the poster would merge Holsteins and the Statue of Liberty.
If you'd be interested in purchasing such a poster for $5 or $10, let Dieter know. Tell him which breed you'd like depicted on the poster. If there's sufficient interest, he'll then go ahead with the project.
