The weather forecast of several inches of snow falling on the Chicago area did not discourage a number of Chicago Farmers’ members from attending the March 13th meeting, which dealt with the relationship between agriculture and water quality. Unfortunately, travel conditions did hamper our speakers’ ability to get to Chicago, but Chicago Farmers’ member, Jeff O’Connor, who had come to the meeting to provide support for the scheduled speakers, volunteered to take on the topic of “Cover Crops and Nutrient Reduction” and serve as the day’s presenter. Thanks to Jeff, it was a great program, and we thank those that were able to attend! 

The next luncheon will be on Monday, April 10th, at the Illini Center. We will welcome Douglas K. Hodge, MAI, ARA, CCIM, MRICS, Vice President of Risk Management/Appraisal Services Group and Senior Agricultural Appraisal Reviewer at Nuveen, to discuss Land Values. Click here to register today!
