During the Christian County Ag Luncheon at the Christian County Fair, Regional Radio News was able to talk with keynote speaker Rich Guebert. Guebert is president of the Illinois Farm Bureau and had a point that he wanted to make sure he covered during his speech at the fair. Guebert told Regional Radio News that he wants the community to be engaged and active in farm bureau activity and to let legislatures know if the community supports the GMO bill or not.
Guebert said that recently they have had two bills that were passed and signed by the legislature and governor that they are very proud of.
Guebert said that he is blessed by the fact his family is able to step in and help him with his work so he is able to do all he can to help serve the people involved in agriculture in the state.
