    40 years, 4 months and 4 days……that’s how long David Harrison served as the LaRue County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources.  After working in Hardin County for a little over four years, David began working in LaRue County in 1980.

  • LaRue County Cattlemen’s Board of Directors
  • 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.

  • Pottinger elected to Kentucky Soybean Association Board

    Quint Pottinger of Nelson County was elected by his fellow farmers to represent them on the Kentucky Soybean Association Board of Directors at the recent Kentucky Commodity Conference. Pottinger is a member of the newly formed Lincoln Trail Area, which consists of Grayson, Breckenridge, Meade, Hardin, LaRue, Nelson, Washington and Marion counties. He replaces Ryan Bivens of LaRue County, who served the maximum of three, three-year terms as an area director.

  • Kentucky Soybean Association News

    Ryan Bivens of Hodgenville recently completed nine years of service to the Kentucky Soybean Association, the maximum consecutive time a director can serve. Bivens, a soybean, corn and wheat farmer in Hodgenville, has been a driving force in the success of the association for many years.

    Bivens and wife Misty were named American Soybean Association/DuPont Young Leaders in 2004, which kick-started his involvement with the soybean association. He was elected to serve on the board by farmers in his region in 2008 and quickly moved to a leadership position.
