My dad is more famous than your dad

In February, my dad spoke at a farmer meeting in Sioux Falls. Here's an excerpt from the story that was written about it:

Less Seat Time
No-till for Dennis means fewer hours on his tractors, which translates to lower fuel costs. He estimates he uses only 2.2 gal. of fuel/acre/year on his entire 1,600-acre corn and soybean farm. Whisney farms with his brother in Jackson County, MN, near Alpha. He says they went “cold turkey” when they switched to no-till in 1992. The switch has paid off in cost savings from using less equipment, less labor and less fuel. Yet corn yields are competitive, producing 200+ bu./acre in 2004, he says.

Just wanted to let you know my dad is famous :)
