Good to see Farm Bureau, KC continue pact

Last summer, the Fayette County Farm Bureau Board of Directors signed an agreement through which Kaskaskia College agriculture students could use the former home of the University of Illinois Agronomy Research Center. The two parties have agreed to continue that relationship, which bodes well for many people.
The agrement provides the college's ag students with  120 acres on which they can perform research while getting hands-on farming experience.
At the same time, the agreement will continue to see that land used for research that is valuable to Fayette County farmers.
That's good to see, what with agriculture being a major industry in Fayette County.
As you can see in Education coverage in this issue, we have some strong FFA programs in the county Hopefully, the education that is enhanced through this agreement will encourage more of our young people to continue their post-high school education through the KC ag program and then continue the strong farming tradition in this county.
