I'm not a farmer, but farmers are smarter than you.
You said that to someone else, not to me, but allow me to make an observation. Farmers are smarter than a LOT of us.
I've lived on US farms and worked with farmers. To paraphrase Will Rogers, I never met a farmer I didn't like.
Aside from having the most commendable work ethic, and living a simple lifestyle free of self-indulgent excesses, the men & women who work on farms & ranches are no less clever, bright & resourceful than anyone I've ever met in the trendy offices of some glass skyscraper.
I've been alongside these people, trying to solve some crisis a mile out in the middle of a field, maybe during 100-degree heat, maybe during a blinding snowstorm. And the inventiveness and creative thought processes are a marvel to behold, that make coming up with some paper "proposal" for your boss back in the office seem like an elementary school exercise.
And all without the life-and-death urgency of facing below-zero temps, having to improvise tools & equipment you don't have, physically stressing your body to the maximum, while still trying to think clearly. (I might add this also describes the brave men & women who serve their countries in military uniform)
Way back in 1984 and 85 I judged some high school science fairs, in the remote US Upper Midwest. Areas that the US Census Bureau designates as "Frontier" because some counties have a population density of less than 6 persons per square mile.
And some of the booths I judged featured personal computers, used to track the farm land use, or cattle and dairy herds; in 1984! And these kids showed me computer graphs portraying the daily milk output of each cow, and the fat content, compared to the feed consumption, etc, etc.
I questioned them closely, and they really knew what the hell they were talking about, and the relevance of this information to better herd management. And I myself had only gotten my own first home computer a year before.
Humans are remarkable creatures, and we are remarkable wherever we are planted, and at whatever it is we do. Professional versus non-professional are artificial distinctions. I know smart men and women when I meet them, regardless of their credentials.
And I also know decent people, smart or otherwise, that our US Constitution says are my equals, despite social discrimination. I really have no use, and no interest, in divisions that separate me from other people. Be my friend, and I will be yours.
