July 16th, 2019 Luncheon Event

On July 16th, 2019 the Northern Illinois Ag’ Center and its 100+ guests were taken by storm by three of the most influential speakers in the Ag’ industry. Our guests were inundated with the most up to date and factual information regarding what is happening in our industry today. Dave Fogel from Advance Trading Inc., Dr. Steve Johnson from Iowa State University and Honorary Master Farmer and the Voice of Agriculture, Max Armstrong, educated us during this two and a half hour Luncheon put on by the Northern Illinois Ag’ Center, a Rooster Ag’ Company.


Growers and Landowners alike were on the edge of their seats hanging onto every golden nugget of advice and factual information that was delivered from these legendary speakers. The scare, concern, struggle and opportunity surrounding 2019’s difficult Spring Plant, the estimated 171.7 million intended to plant acres of corn and soybeans, late planted acres, prevent plant, short crops that have long tails, demand and supply concern, marketing plans, basis levels, record keeping, dealing with a short crop and late harvest, early frost, revenue protection, crop insurance, prevented planting payments, 2019 MFP, 2020 planting plans, first hand experiences and facts from past hard years were all topics that had our guests personally invested and feeling the value of this extremely educational seminar. After having our minds filled with an onslaught of useful information we had our stomachs filled with delicious porkchops, chicken and all the fixin’s by the one and only, the best in the business, Fay’s BBQ.


We would like to personally thank our guest speakers, valued guests and Fay’s BBQ for attending this eye opening event and supporting Rooster Ag’, the Northern Illinois Ag’ Center and its members.
