The Unlikely Way One Farmer Calls His Cattle Has Turned Him Into a Star

It started on Sunday with a simple Facebook post that announced the uploading of a new video from Kansas farmer Derek Klingenberg.

The four-minute video soon caught fire and has gone viral in a very big way, generating over a million hits in one day.

It starts with the trombone-toting Klingenberg all alone in a field on his family’s property in Peabody, Kansas.

The YouTube profile of Farmer Derek Klingenberg describes the family’s Kansas farm by saying, “This is where I raise grain, beef, kids, and creativity.” That certainly seems to be the case.
