44th Illinois Agriculture Legislative Day

Posted by Russel Higgins -

Last week I was joined by co-workers Robert Bellm, Jennifer Fishburn, Dennis Bowman, Nathan Johanning and Richard Hentschel to represent the Illinois Extension Agriculture Association in Springfield at the 44th Illinois Agriculture Legislative Day. The morning gathering included representatives of almost all organizations and associations who participate in or with Illinois Agriculture. After a morning program that included a presentation from Illinois Director of Agriculture Robert Flider, it was off to the Capital Building to join hundreds of Illinois FFA's delivering commodity baskets to legislators. Before returning my efforts to commercial agriculture and the 2014 planting season, I enjoyed visiting with Master Gardener classes in Kendall, Cook, Stephenson, Boone, Lee and Kankakee Counties. Congratulations to the soon to-be graduating Master Gardeners!
