The Big Bushel Club Banquet which celebrated the results of the 2016 corn harvest was held January 18th at Treasure Island.

The Big Bushel Club is a fun way we get to say thank you to the Ag Partners seed customers as well as provide a little friendly competition between friends and neighbors.

Despite battling issues ranging from a May frost to summer wind storms, some very good yields were reported which demonstrates our customers’ ability to make the most of the opportunities provided.
