IVCC ag field day on Sept. 18

OGLESBY — The Illinois Valley Community College agriculture program, in partnership with Case IH and University of Illinois Extension, will conduct a field day at the campus farm along the west side of Orlando Smith Road from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Sept. 18.

The field day is open to the public and features presentations by Kyle Dooley, Case IH Leader, Global Data Strategy and Analytics, and Russ Higgins, University of Illinois Extension agronomist. IVCC ag program coordinators Willard Mott and Kathryn Lillie will provide a brief ag program overview.

“Digital agriculture has become a vital part of today’s agriculture industry and Kyle Dooley is on the frontlines of digital ag every day. His presentation will give us an idea where digital ag is headed in the near future,” said Mott.
