Torrential rains this morning. It was fun to be able to watch the corn blow and the water run between the rows. We ended up with 1.38" of rain and it all came in about 30 minutes. The high wind speed was about 40 mph, so we didn't have any wind damage.
Hi! My name is Sharon Greif. I grew up with corn in rural Illinois where my dad raised seed corn for an old company called Hulting Hybrids. I detasseled corn in high school & have NO desire to ever do that again!
I graduated from Iowa State University where I studied marketing. After three years of living in the "Big City", I decided to follow my love of agriculture and took a job as a district sales manager for a seed corn company. I was assigned a territory in Iowa, where I met & married a corn and soybean farmer from Prairieburg Iowa. Thirty-two years later, I'm still in Iowa, though I love Illinois also.
I served on the Iowa Corn Grower board in the 90's as a district director. I've also served on the Iowa Women in Ag committee and I currently serve on the board of the Iowa Arabian Horse Association.
I love Iowa State football & basketball, Arabian horses, Boxer dogs, and I am passionate about agriculture & it's story.
