ND Ag Hall of Fame Induction

Posted:

Two well known faces in the Agriculture Industry are inducted in the North Dakota Ag Hall of Fame.
Ag Reporter Sarah Gustin takes you to the ceremony.

Well known farm broadcaster, Al Gustin and the late Soil Scientist, Al Black, names are added to a very special wall of fame.
(Maria Black / Al Black's Daughter) "It is a great honor for all the work that he has actually done. My dad was never one to be very open or talk a lot about his accomplishments or awards or anything that he has done. He has always been known as the farmer's scientist." 
(Al Gustin / ND Ag Hall of Recipient) "(Al Gustin / ND Ag Hall of Fame Recipient) "I started in 1967 when I was in college so I ended up with about 45 years. The thing that I remember the most or means the most is when you would get positive feedback either from the newspapers that you work with or from the audience. People say that they really appreciate that you came into their home everyday and brought them the information that they wanted. That is kinda what keeps you going.
Amongst the hussle and bussle at the North Dakota Winter Show, two individuals who've dedicated their lives to farming are receiving a top honor in the agriculture industry.
Every year, since 1997 2-3 people have been inducted into the North Dakota Agriculture Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame honors the men and women who have dedicated their lives to the state´s leading industry....agriculture.
(Dennis Hoye / ND Winter Show Board President) ". Whether it is in the media, seed production, conservation, livestock. All of that is contributing to the great North Dakota agricultural state that we have." 
 "The plaques and recognition are received with humility.
(Al Gustin / ND Ag Hall of Recipient) "That I wasn't worthy. This is a pretty prestigious group. When you look at the 40 people that I have been inducted so far and I knew and worked with many of them and respected them. These are people who made a difference. They are people who changed agriculture. They are people who left a legacy." 
(Maria Black / Al Black's Daughter) "It's a little bitter sweet. It's a huge, huge award. It's very, very important for our family. I just wish he could have been here. "
