Peterson Brothers will perform at Cloud County Fair Free Stage

 The Peterson Farm Brothers, three brothers from central Kansas who are known for their You Tube videos promoting agriculture and farming, will perform on the Cloud County Fair Free Stage at 8 p.m., Friday, July 25.
 Among their parody videos are "I'm Farming and I Grow It" ("I'm Sexy and I Know It") and "All I Do is Farm" ("All I Do is Win").
 One of the purposes of their videos is to educate children in an entertaining way, so they understand that food does not come from the grocery, but from a farmer who actually grows the food they eat.
 The Brothers latest video is a parody of Katy Perry's "Roar" and is titled "Chore," which talks about life on the farm.
 Theme for this year's Fair is "Amazing Agriculture, Honoring Our Producers and Professionals" and a special recognition ceremony will be held at the Peterson Brothers Concert.
