Rural Radio Foundation contributes to Wheat Harvest movie

The Great American Wheat Harvest movie is moving through the panhandle and Wednesday it got a financial boost when the Nebraska Rural Radio Association Foundation donated $1,000 toward the project.

Westco CEO and President David Briggs, who is chairman of the Foundation Board, says the film which will document the 2013 wheat harvest, fits one of the key missions of the Foundation, educating America about the story of agriculture.

Producer-Director Conrad Weaver graciously accepted the check from Briggs during a presentation at the KNEB studios.

Weaver says production on the movie has already chronicled significant differences in yield, from crippled drought stricken crops in Texas and western Kansas to tremendous yields in eastern Kansas, where rain has been plentiful. The film crews were in the Chappell area and southwest of Kimball recently and will move north into Montana and all the way to Saskatchewan, Canada.

The goal is to have the movie debut on National Ag Day in Washington, D.C in March of 2014 and then tour in movie theaters throughout America, including the Historic Midwest Theater in Scottsbluff.
