LG Seeds will award $1,000 to a grand prize winner at the Farm Progress Show next week, to donate to the winner’s local FFA Chapter or 4-H Club.

LG Seeds will be at Lot 133 at the Farm Progress Show this year.  People who visit LG Seeds’ tent will be offered a scratch and win ticket to see if they are an instant winner.  Whether or not the person is an instant winner or not, he or she can fill out the back card and will be entered into a drawing to win the $1,000 grand prize to be donated to their local FFA or 4-H Club.  The winner will be contacted after the show.

LG Seeds Brand Supply Manager and Illinois 4-H Foundation Board Member, Eric Yoder, is very excited that LG Seeds is giving back to the community, particularly ag-related organizations.  Yoder says, “FFA and 4-H are both strong groups that provide learning and leadership opportunities to students across not only Illinois, but the country.  LG Seeds feels it is very important to give back to the community and to such great organizations.”

LG Seeds Supply Specialist, Julie Mellert, is also very pleased with LG’s focus to help a local area FFA or 4-H Club.  Mellert says, “FFA and 4-H are not your average youth organizations.  It’s a great fit to give back to those organizations because LG Seeds is also not your average seed company.  We truly value our farming community and are thrilled to give back to an ag-related cause.”

The Farm Progress Show will be taking place August 30 through September 1 next week in Decatur, IL.   LG Seeds, based in Elmwood, Illinois, is a producer and marketer of seed corn, soybean and alfalfa seed, operating throughout the US Cornbelt.
