    The ag industry has a huge impact on our local economy. Without agriculture our communities would not survive. As a community leader it is important to understand that agriculture has an impact on everyone in a small community. I help a friend during harvest and worked on the harvest run for many years.

    I grew up on the farm raising wheat, hay and lots of cattle. My husband now manages his family farm raising soybeans, wheat, and milo. There are so many aspects to farming including the harvest of each crop. Each is a lifestyle in itself.

    I was raised on a farm in southcentral Nebraska – we had livestock and dry land and irrigated crops. I attended UNL and have a degree in Ag Economics. I now work as a lender for Farm Credit Services of America and have been lending for about 20 years now, but my dream is to get back to the farm in my retirement!

    (And, I always loved wheat harvest most and wanted to go on a harvest crew!)

    I am an 80% retired corn/soybean/swine farmer who lives in western-central Ohio. This year I am raising my 58th corn crop.
    I dreamed in the late 1950’s of having the privilege of working with a crew on the wheat harvesting trip from Texas to Canada. I have been very happy to follow the posts from the family experiences for the past three years brought to me by the sponsors.
    Coincidently enough, I have Syngenta corn planted this year with several weed control products also from Syngenta.

    Other states also developed funding programs and we merged into Great plains wheat. I was involved with a number of overseas trips to
    to review our offices and also meet with customers.

    I can’t decide what I like to do best. I like to feed and care for animals, weld, wrench and operate equipment, bookeeping, carpentry,electrical. I like to be outdoors and see rain, soil, and sunlight grow a seed and be part of it. Agriculture is the only business I can do all of those things. Everyone who eats is interested in agriculture.
