Meet the Compton Family

Meet the winners of the 2014 Louisiana Farm Bureau's Young Farmers and Ranchers Achievement Awards - John & Brianne Compton. TWILA's Kristen Oaks tells us how this young couple manages raising a farm and a family.


One way to make sure we have enough food for the future is to support the next generation of young farmers and ranchers. TWILA's Kristen Oaks takes us to Alexandria for the Louisiana Farm Bureau's Young Farmers and Ranchers Youth Livestock show.
