Hoping for a bin-buster year
Wednesday, June 10, 2020
For Jon Oden, like his wheat fields, life has had many challenges. But like his fields, he keeps going – often with a calm demeanor and an optimistic attitude.
Oden is a fifth-generation farmer, operating Sterling Heritage Farms in Sterling and Lyons. Like his forebears, he raises wheat, corn, soybeans and milo. He’s added and deleted other crops to and from the mix throughout the years, including alfalfa, sunflowers and cotton.
