STATION EDITORIAL

Posted April 25, 2021

 

This is a station editorial, I'm Randal J. Miller, station president.  As we've been saying in this space for several weeks, it's finally spring.  Not only does that mean the birds singing and the trees budding, but also means that Central Illinois farmers are on the roads getting to and from their fields to plant the 2021 corn and soybean crop.

 

With agriculture being the number one industry in the counties we serve, it's important that we remember that farmers not only grow food for us in the United States, but for mouths that need fed around the world.

 

We are grateful for the farm families that labor to till, plant, and nuture a crop that literally feeds the world.

 

And, remember, anytime you put gasoline in your tank, in most cases at least 10 percent of what you pump is ethanol that comes from corn grown right here in Central Illinois.  It's another way for us to support our farmers.

 

For those of you that burn diesel fuel in your big rigs and larger vehicles, also remember what you pump includes biodiesel made from soybean oil.  Those soybeans are grown right here in Central Illinois.

 

Planting season also means that large tractors, tilling and planting equipment, will be moving on our state and county highways and township roads.  Please be respectful of them and remember they display those "slow moving vehicle"emblems for a reason.

 

Our radio group joins county Illinois Farm Bureaus in asking you to "See a tractor and slow down" this spring.  That will help both you and the farmer driving that equipment, safe on our roads, and also help both you and the farmer grow this year's crop from some of the most productive farmland in the world!

 

County Farm Bureau's will be posting signs and banners along roadways with the same "See a tractor and slow down" reminder.  We hope you'll follow their advice.

 

For the sake of our farmers.

 

That's our opinion, we welcome yours.  Our e-mail address is editorial@randyradio.com.
