Jones County Ag Breakfast is scheduled

   The inaugural Jones County Ag Breakfast will be Sunday, June 5, 9 a.m.-noon at the Great Jones County Fair Equestrian Center in Monticello.

   The event is being held in place of the traditional Jones County Dairy Banquet, normally held in February.

   “Bruce Telleen and the Jones County Dairy Board reached out to the pork producers, cattlemen and Extension after deciding to forego their banquet,” said Abby Jaeger of the Jones County Pork Producers, “and wondered if we would be interested in coming together to educate our local community on agriculture.”

   The menus includes eggs, pancakes, sausage, steak, yogurt, milk, water and coffee and ice cream.

   Educational displays will be provided by the Jones County Dairy Promoters, Jones County Pork Producers, Jones County Farm Bureau, Jones County Cattlemen, Iowa Corn, and Jones County 4-H.

   “Right here in Jones County, we want people young and old to be confident that their food comes from people who truly care,” Jaeger said.
