Chad - are you involved at all with Farm Bureau ? If you are interested, go to www.indianayoungfarmers.org the site is very similar to this one, but focus's on Indiana. We are having our annual young farmers conference next weekend in Indy - we would love to have you there. If you are interested in going or have any questions, email me or go to the website. Thanks, JW (email@example.com) I'm pretty sure we can get you signed up for $free$ for the weekend.
