John Deere Classic Sales Event is Happening

At P&K Midwest, we believe in honoring those who dedicate their lives to conservation and sustainability in agriculture. That's why we're thrilled to partner with John Deere and Van Wall Equipment in delivering a brand new tractor to Dan Voss, the esteemed recipient of the 2023 Iowa Farm Bureau Conservation Farmer of the Year award.

Dan Voss's commitment to conservation is not just a passion; it's a way of life deeply ingrained in his family's farming heritage. On his Linn County farm fields near Palo, Dan's dedication to maintaining environmental quality and sustainability is evident in every acre of corn, soybeans, oats, and hay. From implementing no-till and cover crop practices to pioneering bioreactors and saturated buffers, Dan's innovative approach sets a high standard for stewardship of the land.

Dan's journey towards conservation began in his youth, fueled by a deep-rooted interest in environmental preservation. Over the years, he has implemented a wide array of conservation practices on his 600-acre farm, including waterways, buffer strips, prairie strips, and pollinator habitats. His dedication to conservation extends beyond his own land, as he collaborates with local authorities and fellow farmers to promote water quality and conservation efforts.

The recognition of Dan Voss as the 2023 Iowa Farm Bureau Conservation Farmer of the Year is a testament to his unwavering dedication and innovative spirit. His story serves as a beacon of hope for the future of agriculture, inspiring others to embrace conservation practices for the greater good.

As part of his well-deserved prize, Dan will receive free use of a John Deere 6E Series utility tractor for up to 12 months or 200 hours of use. This tractor is generously donated through a partnership with P&K Midwest, Van Wall Equipment, and John Deere. This partnership underscores our collective commitment to supporting farmers like Dan who are leading the way in sustainable agriculture.

At P&K Midwest, we are honored to be a part of Dan Voss's journey and look forward to continuing to support him and others who share our passion for conservation and sustainability in agriculture. Congratulations, Dan, on this well-deserved recognition!
