Last week ASA staff and grower leaders took to the fields of Decatur, Illinois to talk about soybeans, trade, infrastructure, biodiesel, the upcoming farm bill, harvest season and more at the 2017 Farm Progress Show.
Highlights of the week included ASA President Ron Moore’s testimony during the House Ag Committee’s Farm Bill Listening Session, the meet and greet and intimate conversation with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, live TV and radio hits with ag journalists and cruising the show in style thanks to Kubota, who donated the use of two RTV0x1120D utility vehicles throughout the week.
