    Thank you to all who attended the first program of the new season on Monday, September 10th, at the Illini Center. Dr. Gary Schnitkey, professor and farm management specialist in the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois, whose research emphasis includes farm profitability, gave us his thoughts on the grain farm outlook and cash rents for 2019. With over 100 people in attendance, it was a full house! Dr. Schnitkey also received the Distinguished Service to Agriculture Award, and we'd like to thank him once more for his contribution to the industry and participation in our Association. 

    Please join us for our End of Summer Tour at Uncommon Ground on Saturday, September 22nd. The Rooftop Farm Director, Allison, will give our group a tour of the organic rooftop garden. Following the tour, we'll head down to the bar for a happy hour with some light appetizers provided by our host. Click here to register!
