Keystone Group Agricultural Seeds Attends Ag Progress Days

Spencer Allen and Will AnchorAll had a great time as Keystone Group Agricultural Seeds attended the Ag Progress Days in Rock Springs this year. Farm families from all over Pennsylvania, the southern states, as well as New England came to learn about the latest innovations in the agricultural industry and spend time with Penn State Extension educators.  Attending and minding our tent was Joe Anchor, Spencer Allen, Nancy Houston and new this year, Joe’s son Will. Hope you saw how much pride Joe had watching Will speaking to folks coming through the tent. Will answered questions regarding the Tillage Radish product, as well as other cover crops, like a seasoned pro.

We feel the corn plot we displayed will help make corn sales easy this coming spring for anyone who walked through it. We were quite pleased with how beautiful our corn plot looked and what a great job our technician did tending to the plot before Ag Progress Days. It’s always better to show customers a corn plot, as opposed to just being able to show the corn varieties in a catalog.

We would like to thank the companies we work withand the help they provided us: Andrew, Angelia and Brian from 1st Choice Seeds, Gary Dollarhite from ABM, and Joe Schmidlen from Barenbrug. Barenbrug also had present Peter Ballerstedt, Forage Product manager for the United States. His attendance affirmed his commitment to Keystone Group Ag Seeds, their customers, and our future endeavors. We truly have incredible support.

As Joe Anchor sums it up, “We have been participating as a vendor at Ag Progress Days now for 14 years. While agriculture has changed over those 14 years, the quality and integrity of our farmers have not changed. And, while it is a lot of hard work getting ready for Ag Progress Days, the reward for our effort, besides seeing customers and meeting potential customers, is seeing the farmers, talking about their operations, and seeing the interaction they have with their families. We truly are in the greatest industry imaginable.

Ag Progress Days is Pennsylvania’s largest outdoor agricultural exposition featuring the latest technology and research exhibits, educational programs, and guided tours. Sponsored by Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences, the event is held at the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center at Rock Springs, nine miles southwest of State College, PA, and is one of only three agricultural exhibitions in the country sponsored by a major University.  The exhibits showcase the latest in Penn State research, as well as information on best management practices and changing regulations in the agricultural industry. Over 45,000 people attend this event.
