YORKVILLE – The Illinois Farm Bureau has presented their 2016 “Friend of Agriculture” award to State Representative Keith Wheeler (R-Oswego) in recognition of his voting record in support of pro-agriculture initiatives in the 99th General Assembly. Presenting the award to Representative Wheeler was Kendall County Farm Bureau President Bob Stewart.
“As a sixth-generation resident of Kendall County, I am exceptionally humbled to accept this award from our friends at the Illinois Farm Bureau,” Representative Wheeler said. “The family farmers and agri-business industry of Kane and Kendall Counties are the backbone of our state and local economy, producing the corn and soybeans that feed Illinois and the world. I am proud to stand with them and remain committed to being a strong advocate for agriculture as a member of the Illinois House of Representatives.”
