DECATUR, Ill. (DTN) -- Last year, Brent and Lisa Judisch agreed to let DTN readers follow their growing season through weekly reports from the field and farm. The Cedar Falls, Iowa, couple never dreamed so many readers would come along for the ride.
For the past 13 years, DTN's View From the Cab series has encouraged readers to experience the successes, struggles and dreams of two farm families each week from spring planting through harvest. Now we're looking for two new farmers to step into the role for 2018.
"The conversations kept my mind fresh on what all happens around here on a weekly basis," said Brent. He even formed a connection with a farmer from Indiana and they were able to visit in person over the summer.
Farmers interested in participating in View From the Cab during the 2018 season should send us a short note and tell us why you and your farm should be featured in this series. Give us an idea of what you grow, where and why you'd like to be considered and send to Pamela.firstname.lastname@example.org.
