West Luthers 4H field crops club underway

The West Luther 4-H field crops club held its third meeting on June 21 at Shaw­ridge Farms grain elevator.     


The topic of an interactive discussion given by CM Seeds representative, Archie Wilson, was the importance of crops marketing.

Using charts of previous commodity prices, Wilson explained the factors taken into account when marketing crops.

Darcy Weber provided a tour of the elevator. He demon­strated testing a corn sample from a truck on the scale as well as unloading a truck into the pit.

The club enjoyed refresh­ments after member Jason Schill thanked both speakers for their time. The next meeting will be held on Aug. 23 with the location to be announced.
