Since earning recognition as the 2014 Top Producer of the Year nominee, Joe Zumwalt of Warsaw, Ill. has been making changes to his operation.
He farms the river bottoms miles east of the Mississippi River. He tries to push populations with his current acres instead of purchasing more by the river.
Zumwalt has also authored a succession plan between his uncle and dad where acres are annually shifted to Joe. They say it’s good to stay proactive and develop a plan which works for their operation.
AgDay's national reporter Betsy Jibben shows the Zumwalt’s story on AgDay above as well.
