Bustos Schedules ‘Cheri on Shift’ at Gold Star FS in Aledo

Western Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos will participate in a “Cheri on Shift” Thursday morning at Gold Star, a full line agronomy location which studies fertilizer, crop protection, and seed. Gold Star’s Aledo location also is home to a Grain Systems Department with bins, conveyors, and augers. This will be the 66th Cheri on Shift job-shadowing event Bustos has held since becoming a member of Congress. Bustos will do some work in the chemical bay and the tire shop, as well as learn how to spray a field of crops and put up a grain bin.
During the month of August, Bustos is doing her annual 21st Century Heartland Tour which focuses on the issues rural communities face and explores solutions to grow the local economy.
