Many in the agriculture industry came out to the Dudley Smith Farm near Pana for the farm's field day. The Dudley Smith Farm works in conjunction with the University of Illinois Extension to research various ag related topics.
Local Farm Broadcaster Jared White was live at the farm for the field day, and spoke with several notable names in the local agriculture industry, one of which was local farmer TJ Curtin. Curtin said his operation has been working closely with the Dudley Smith Farm for roughly ten years now.
Curtin says the work he does with the Dudley Smith Farm allows his operation to try various practices and techniques, before potentially bringing those methods back to his own operation.
