Ag Legislative Day. The 53rd Annual Illinois Agricultural Legislative Day (IALD) took place on Wednesday, March 29, 2023 at the State Capitol. Hundreds of FFA and 4-H members along with Illinois Farm Bureau leaders joined representatives of 50 agricultural organizations to discuss key industry issues with state lawmakers. Pictured are ALAH FFA members Gracelyn Arnett, Ava Binion, Brody Louden, Brooklyn Gingerich, and Abigail Miller who traveled to Springfield last week. They were part of the longstanding tradition of more than a thousand FFA members in official dress passing out baskets filled with agricultural products and specialty lunches to legislators as a reminder of the impact their choices make on the world of agriculture. The Homestead Bakery also participated as they were contacted and donated bread for the 400 sandwiches.
