  • Indiana delegation visits Hill on soybean issues
    Wednesday, July 30, 2014 9:00 AM
    Members of Indiana Soybean Alliance’s Policy Committee visited Washington, D.C., recently to meet with Indiana’s congressional delegation about issues important to Indiana soybean farmers. 
  • Jared Finegan
    If we could have controlled the weather for the Iroquois County Fair, we wouldn’t have made it as perfect as it was. I cannot remember a year where it didn’t rain at all, and I don’t think it has ever been as comfortably cool as it was this year. 
  • Ted Mottaz
    Week 12 of our growing season observations is basically more of the same. Corn and soybeans are still progressing very well. As I stated last week, I spent the past week in Washington, D.C., and I basically got this week’s update from one of my neighbors. 
  • Grant Noland
    For the first time in six weeks, I’m providing an update without measurable rainfall for our area. Even without rain, the cooler-than-average temperatures have allowed for adequate subsoil moisture to remain present beneath the canopy, and crop conditions are very good. 
  • David Droste
    This past week saw cooler-than-normal temps, which were enjoyed by everyone. The corn crop especially benefited while most of it was finishing its pollination period. 
  • Darren Frye
    On the farm, we use plenty of filters; think of all the engine filters in your equipment. Having the right filters in place ensures that any impurities will be filtered out of the oil before it reaches the engine. 
  • New coliseum dominates Indiana State Fair
    Every summer a different commodity is highlighted at the Indiana State Fair. There’s been “Year of the Corn,” “Year of the Dairy Cow” and many other themes, but this year is unlike anything we’ve seen. 
  • Spring: Farmers hard at work keeping world fed
    Finally, it’s here. Spring. Warmer weather. This past week, I spent mostly on the road, traveling to five different farms in northern and north-central Illinois. 
  • U.S grain quality top-notch for export
    The U.S. Grains Council recently released a report that serves as an important piece of the competitive global market in promoting our corn. 
  • Farmers should take time to take care of bodies, mind
    Farmers are some of the hardest working people out there. Constant lifting, pushing, fixing and running between fields, balanced with maintaining a family life, they often push their bodies to the limit. 
  • Farm stories need to be told
    I’ve been told that, for a long time, farmers and ag businesses were quiet when it came to telling their stories. Stories of hard work, integrity and progress. Things to be proud of. I’m glad that I’ve heard so many of these stories over the years — even before I worked in the agriculture industry.
