Dear County Agent Guy: Calf Pulling, Husband Training, and Other curious Dispatches from a Midwestern Dairy Farmer by Jerry Nelson
In the tradition of Mark Twain, Jean Shepherd and Dave Barry, Jerry Nelson is a humorist of the American heartland.
A fourth-generation dairy farmer, Nelson discovered his voice after he wrote a tongue-in cheek letter to his county agent for advise on what to do, after a period of heavy rain, about the ducks and Jet Skiers frolicking in his cornfields. From then on Nelson had a new calling to go along with his day job—writing a humorous column called “Dear County Agent Guy.” Nelson’s depictions of daily life, from the point of view of a taciturn husband with a twinkle in his eye, are read by 250,000 people a week—and woven into A Prairie Home Companion scripts.
