DRONE INFORMATIONAL MEETING

 

DRONE INFORMATIONAL MEETING PLANNED FOR FARMERS MARCH 24TH

A meeting concerning the agricultural use of Drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) will be held on Thursday, March 24th at the McDonough 4-H Center, 3022 W Jackson, Macomb.  The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. and will conclude with lunch at noon.

Presenter will be Chad Colby of Colby Ag Tech. Colby is a industry leader in the field of drones. Come hear the latest about rules and regulations as well as the latest and greatest drones.

Drones are quickly moving from the battlefield to the farmer’s field — on the verge of helping growers oversee millions of acres throughout rural America and possibly saving them money in the process.

The meeting is being sponsored by the Fulton, McDonough, Knox, Warren-Henderson, and Hancock County Farm Bureaus. Refreshments are sponsored by West Central FS and Fulton FS.  Charge for Farm Bureau members is $10 and the fee for non-members is $20.  The fee includes lunch.  Register by March 22nd by calling the McDonough County Farm Bureau at 309-837-3350 or online HERE.
