ILLINOIS FARMERS DISCUSS LOCKS & DAMS

Waterways (e.g. Mississippi River) are important to farmers, especially in the Midwest. That’s how they are able to transport the grain that they produce to places across the globe. Since exports are one of the largest factors of where corn goes after it’s grown,  farmers depend on these waterways. Many of these structures are outdated and crumbling after going decades without improvement. We need them to be updated now or farmers will lose a cost efficient and vital resource. It facilitates the largest part of corn sales. It’s incredibly important to farmers, to a state’s economy, and to our national economy.

Here’s two of our leaders, Grundy County farmers Paul Jeschke and his wife Donna, explaining how necessary these structures are.
