The sun is shining, the national anthem has just played, and the gates of Husker Harvest Days are open. This agricultural extravaganza is celebrating its 45th anniversary in 2023. RFD-TV had the privilege to speak with Susan Littlefield, Farm Director and dedicated farm broadcaster at KRVN in Lexington, Nebraska.
Susan shared her insights and memorable moments from this remarkable agricultural showcase after 25 years of experience covering the event. Littlefield emphasized how this event is like coming home after a year of traveling.
“I always look forward to Husker Harvest Days,” she said. “It’s such a great opportunity for folks. A lot of families come together, some of them use it as their mini vacation before they really get into full swing harvest.”
Reflecting on her tenure covering Husker Harvest Days, she also spent time acknowledging the variety of experiences she’s witnessed over the last 25 years. As part of her unique perspective on this event’s growth and significance, she highlighted one pivotal moment — when the event transitioned from dirt to pavement, reducing dust concerns.
“I think the biggest improvement was when we went from dirt to pavement, that really helped to improve the show a lot,” she said. “We don’t have the dust worries that we used to have.”
