  • Soybean yield awards held, Sweazy wins district honors

    Sweazy Farms took top honors in District IV at the Kentucky Commodity Conference held Jan. 15 in Bowling Green.

    Tallying a whopping 87.46 bushels per acre, Sweazy Farms took home a plaque from the Kentucky Soybean Board, along with bragging rights for the rest of the year. Because Sweazy serves on the Kentucky Soybean Association Board, he was ineligible for the monetary award that normally accompanies such a win.
