At this year’s Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, NE, Farm Progress Show in Decatur, IL, and at Ohio Farm Science Review in London, OH, farmers registered for a chance to win $1,000 to be donated to their local FFA or 4-H Club of choice.
Gail Neumeister of Peru, NE was LG Seeds’ grand prize winner at Husker Harvest Days. Neumeister elected to donate the $1,000 to the Johnson County Central FFA.
Jared Maxheimer of Mt. Pulaski, IL was LG Seeds’ grand prize winner at the Farm Progress Show. Maxheimer elected to donate the $1,000 to the Mt. Pulaski FFA.
Jan Strauser of Laura, OH was LG Seeds’ grand prize winner at the Ohio Farm Science Review. Strauser elected to donate the $1,000 to the Newton Blue Ribbon Livestock 4-H club, where his grandson, Jeffrey, is a member.
LG Seeds Brand Supply Manager and Illinois 4-H Foundation Board Member, Eric Yoder, is thrilled that LG Seeds gave back to the community, particularly to ag-related organizations. Yoder says, “The FFA and 4-H Club are strong groups that provide learning and leadership opportunities to students across the country. They are also not your average youth organizations. It is a great fit to give back to the FFA and 4-H because LG Seeds is also not your average seed company. We truly value our farming community and are excited to give back to such a valuable ag-related cause.”
LG Seeds will also be attending the National Farm Machinery Show in February in which they will be running the same promotion for farmers to register for a chance to have LG Seeds donate on their behalf.
