Illinois Farm Bureau recognizes Rep. Keicher as “Friend of Agriculture”

State Representative Jeff Keicher (R-Sycamore) was presented with the Illinois Farm Bureau’s “Friend of Agriculture” Award this week.

“Farmers are a critical part of the fabric of our area and they’ve had a rough couple years. I’m beyond honored to earn the Friend of Agriculture Award from the Farm Bureau,” Representative Keicher said.

The Friend of Agriculture Award honors State and Federal legislators who understand the importance of Illinois agriculture. Legislators receiving this award recognize the far-reaching benefits of Illinois’ agricultural products and the importance farmers play in providing quality food, fiber, and fuel for our state, nation, and world. 

Representative Keicher serves the 70th District, which includes portions of DeKalb, Kane and Boone Counties.
