National Agriculture Week Continues in Shelby County

National Agriculture Week has been successful in counties across Illinois and Cruisin' 98.3 WSVZ ventured to the Shelby County 4-H Fair Grounds for the Young Farmers Farm City Breakfast. Many local agriculture voices were on hand and WSVZ got a chance to sit down and find out more about the progressions of agriculture.

Kevin Bernson, Vice President of Media and Public Relations for Shelby Electric Cooperative says that only 75% of farms in Shelby County have internet access. Bernson and Shelby Electric look to provide more broadband services for these farmers.


Helping rural farmers is at the core of values for Shelby Electric, says Faith Wheeler, a Member Service Specialist.


Kevin Bernson explains the Rural Electrification Administration and how its history has brought Shelby Electric into the position they are in today.


As National Ag Week concludes, information about rural farms in Central Illinois, their benefit to the community, and how their operations are being aided were all made more clear.
