I recently announced a new opportunity with AgVenture that I’m very excited about. We're going to be utilizing our farm a lot more for testing, consulting and yield checks using AgVenture hybrids and management practices. We can afford to do new things because we have a small footprint — with 750 acres, we can handle a lot of testing and fine-tuning to get that true net effect.
WABASH, INDIANA (September 16, 2016) — AgVenture McKillip Seeds, Inc. recently welcomed more than 300 producers from across northeast Indiana and western Ohio to their annual Customer Appreciation Educational Field Day event. Held at the family-owned and operated seed business headquarters north of Wabash, Indiana, customers engaged in in-depth product discussions with leaders from McKillip Seeds and AgVenture, Inc. (AVI).
Things are going well here. We are bailing stalks for our cow herd operation. We’ve only got about 250 bales to go, so it’s not too bad. The amount we have should put us through the fall, so we’re set.
Mother nature ain’t letting us go to the fields, but that’s par for the course at this time. Right now it’s raining and cold at 34°, and everything’s wet and it’s supposed to get down to the 20s the next couple of nights. So we’re staying busy working on equipment in the shop. We’re also getting some seed corn delivered soon, so we’re working at a nice pace.
