Stopping by the Gilman Agronomy Center

On Monday morning I visited the Heritage FS Gilman Agronomy Center. We toured the liquid building and the dry fertilizer building and got an up close look at some of their equipment, including a fuel truck and a propane bobtail.

This is the first of hopefully many conversations about bridging the gap between rural and urban Illinois. Discussion has started on finding ways and opportunities to get my colleagues from urban areas onto the farm to educate and see firsthand our way of life.

Thank you for the opportunity to see the facility and more importantly the dialogue we had on moving Illinois forward for businesses and families!
