Bright & Sunny this morning. I see the #3 is now covered up on the measuring stick, so the corn is 3+ feet tall. It was right at 2 feet tall a week ago. Everything is pretty wet around here. We've now had over 6" for the month of June.
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.
