Greetings, I am Jon Skinner, your new field agronomist for northern Illinois and Wisconsin. Born and raised on a row crop farm in central Illinois, I was ingrained with a passion and fascination for agriculture. This lead me to northern Illinois nearly nine years ago. I have since set roots in the small farming community of Atkinson, Illinois with my wife, Brianne and our two children, Aubrey (4), and Levi (2).
I was drawn to Beck’s for numerous reasons, but the main one is their dedication to putting farmers first. One way this can be seen first hand is through the Practical Farm Research (PFR)® program. Farmers that attend one of Beck’s Annual Field Shows will have the chance to tour hundreds of agronomic and economic trials that showcase a wide variety of agricultural products.
As the summer continues and turns into fall, I look forward to meeting you and being able to help with any needs that may arise on your farm!
