On October 12, 2021, Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau’s Adopt-a-Legislator, Representative Jonathan Carroll and staff member, Elly Fawcett-Neal joined us at the Claretta Farm to experience the daily operations of a dairy operations.  Our trip to the fields for a combine ride was detoured due to the recent rains. However, Rep. Carroll was able to climb into a tractor and made a stop at the Newhouse’s field to discuss cover crop conservation practices.  We ended the day, with lunch and a visit to Edwards Orchard in Poplar Grove.  Thank you, Representative Jonathan Carroll, for your interest in Illinois agriculture.  Thank you, Brent and Amber Mueller, Marshall Newhouse, and Andy Smith for sharing your farm operations with Representative Carroll.  (Front row: Gary Greenlee, Julie Newhouse, John Cleland.

State Representative Maurice West joined Richard Beuth, Paul Beuth and Jack Roettger out at the Beuth Farm on Thursday, November 4th.  Rep. West climbed into the combine to experience this year's corn harvest.  Richard and Rep. West discussed the different varieties of corn produced in Illinois; how it is marketed and transported, as well as the impacts of rising input costs.  Farm Bureau continues to work with our local, state, and federal legislators to protect and strengthen the agricultural industry.
