On Wednesday, September 2, Blake Meyer and I were given the privilege to attend the Farm Progress Show. The show was a great opportunity to learn more about what drives agriculture here in Illinois. Ranging from tires to seed, we saw just about anything and everything that has to do with agriculture while there.
Most importantly, the two of us were able to stop at Zimmatic’s tent. For those readers who don’t know, Zimmatic by Lindsay is a company which produces high-performing irrigation systems. During our stop at the tent, Tony Burks was kind enough to tell us more about Zimmatic and their products. We even got to meet some members from Lindsay and Zimmatic!
We would again like to express our gratitude to Lindsay and Zimmatic for donating their time, equipment and service to our FFA irrigated plot system. It is because of local farmers, Scott Warner, Tony Burks, and Lindsay’s dedication to our FFA program that our FFA Plot and Program is successful.
I would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Wyatt Meyer for taking us. It was an amazing experience and I’m glad I had the opportunity to go. Now, we are looking forward to our 2015 Plot Harvest and we wish all of our farmers a safe and successful harvest.
