Jo-Lane Dairy honored with Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award


Lance and Jonna Schutte, owners of Jo-Lane Dairy near Monona, were presented the Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award on Sept. 15, in a ceremony at the Froelich 1890s Village Museum Barn. Lance and Jonna, along with their children Blake, Briella, Breklyn and Brayton, are pictured with Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig (left), Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers Executive Director Brian Waddingham (right) and Alex Frazier from Vinton-based Frazier Nursery, which provided the Schuttes with an oak tree.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig presented the award to the Schutte family. He touted events like the one last week as key in promoting the importance of agriculture.

According to Jonna, the Schutte family believes in five things: “We believe in God and all he’s blessed us with. And with that, we believe in ourselves, our kids, our cows and our future.” To her, the Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award embodies it all. “That we’re taking care of our animals and land and being active in our community—doing things to make the world a better place, as cliche as it sounds,” she said.

Local entities among state auditor’s PIE program winners


State Auditor Rob Sand visited Elkader on Sept. 15, as part of his yearly town hall tour, which he uses to listen to residents and gather feedback at a local level. The top issues heard during the visit were combating waste and fraud in government spending and creating more government efficiency. Sand, who is currently running for re-election, highlighted his bi-partisan approach to the office, the success of the Public Innovations and Efficiencies (PIE) program and improvements in Iowa’s Targeted Small Business program for women, minorities, the disabled and veterans. Sand, who grew up in northeast Iowa, said, “I feel at home when I’m touring around here.”
