    WELCOME TO THE CHICAGO FARMERS!

    Thank you to all who attended the Annual Meeting on May 14th at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago where Rob Dongoski, Partner and Global Agribusiness Leader at Ernst & Young, presented on Consolidation in Corporate Agriculture and Effect at the Farm Gate. At the meeting, we also welcomed incoming Board Members, Sarah Heck, Ryan Tracy, and Kay Whitlock, as well as thanked outgoing Board Members, Brian Duke, Eric Rund, and Dan Stokes. Pete Petges was given the award of Plowman of the Year, and Barbara Clark was thanked for her two years as President. It was a lovely luncheon and a full house!

    The Chicago Farmers take the summer off with the exception of the Summer Tour. Be on the lookout for more information coming soon!
