A Manchester man was honored with the Manchester Chamber’s “Friend of Ag” Award on Thursday. Todd Boss was recognized for his years of volunteering with area ag organizations.
Over the years, Boss has been involved with such organizations as the Delaware County Pork Producers, Delaware County 4-H and the Delaware County Extension Council – just to name a few.
The award was presented at the end of the Chamber’s Ag Luncheon, which featured guest speaker Ken Root. Root is an award-winning agricultural journalist with the Iowa Agribusiness News Network that is heard daily here on KMCH. So what does Root see for the future of farming? He says it’s a cyclical industry – and that’s something we shouldn’t lose sight of.
Root also addressed FFA members and a smaller group of farmers and ag business leaders at a breakout session Thursday morning.
