The Illinois agriculture community came together last week for an awards luncheon in Bloomington, Ill., to honor the 2023 Prairie Farmer Master Farmers. The 2023 class includes Martin Barbre, Carmi; David Meiss, Gridley; Ron Moore, Roseville; Curt Strode, Marietta; and Honorary Master Farmer Bob Easter.
RFD Radio Network’s Rita Frazer delivered the keynote address for the day, reminding the crowd that “the best people work in agriculture.”
Many past Master Farmers come back to welcome the new class, and were recognized with an ovation. Growmark serves as a financial sponsor of the award, and also helped make possible the videos that were shared of each Master Farmer.
