There’s still plenty of time to add the Gateway Ag Tour to your reservation. The tour takes place Monday, October 7, 2019 from Noon – 4:00 pm. The price for this tour is $60 and includes lunch.

Stops on the tour include:

Purina

Take advantage of this opportunity to hear about the industry-leading research done by animal nutrition giant, Purina. Founded in 1894 as the Robinson-Danforth Commission Company by William H. Danforth partnering with George Robinson and William Andrews, the business began by feeding farm animals. Since then, they’ve been guided by the belief that animals and people are better together and the name eventually changed to Purina. The company’s passion for animals now goes beyond pet nutrition to forging partnerships and creating innovative products. You can tell from the moment you walk in the door that their world revolves around animals, whether you’re seeing the art on the walls or the many cats and dogs that employees take to work every day. This will be an experience you won’t forget.

Stumpy’s Spirits

Experience a brewery changing the game. From fresh limestone well water to grain grown on nearby land, Stumpy’s Spirits in Columbia, Illinois, sources nearly all of their ingredients from their eighth generation family farm. Having full control over the grain they grow allows them to do what others can’t. They plant, harvest, mill, mash, ferment, and distill their spirits from grain to glass. Join us for a private tour and tasting at their distillery where samples of their spirits – bourbon, vodka and whiskey – will be served in a keepsake tasting glass.

Be sure to add this fantastic off-site afternoon to your pre-event plans as you register for the Fall Conference.
