"I was one of the first farmers in this area to use no-till and ridge-till in plant- ing crops. Keith and Jane Anderson with their two children, Karin and Eric farm south of Clinton and have implemented a number of conser- vation programs into their farming operation. "While at the the U of M, I did a six-month internship with Mobil Chemical in their ag chemical department and traveled extensive- ly doing plot work in Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, western Okla- homa and the panhandle of Texas. I met some of the early innovators with ridge-till and believed the" practice would work in Big Stone County," said Keith. After getting his agronomy degree, Keith took over the family farm southeast of Clinton. Several years of ridge-till evolved to no-till planting of soybeans and wheat when the Andersons bought a Hay- buster 1000 drill and eventually a John Deere 750 drill. The Anderson family has also planted field windbreaks and enrolled stream bank areas into the conservation reserve program. They have been involved in three major wetland restoration projects that help control flooding and will help with the restoration of the Minnesota River. "Even though farm income is sometimes disap- pointing there is satisfaction in knowing we are being good stew- ards of the environment," said Jane. Keith and Jane Anderson have two children, Karin and Eric who attend school in Ortonville. Karin is in ninth grade and active in a host of extracurricular activities includ- ing band, gymnastics, Knowledge Bowl, ballet, Key Club, Business Professionals of America (BPA) and drama, including this years' play 'Annie.' Eric is a junior and plays the tuba in the band and has a strong interest in all things computer gen- erated including designing web pages. He's also active in Knowl- edge Bowl and will be competing in five different BPA events at the state competitions in March. He is active in Boy Scouts and looks for- ward to finishing his Eagle Scout project. Jane and Keith met after Jane took her first teaching job at James Knoll Elementary. Keith proposed the old fashioned way, officially asking Jane's lather. Jane is from St. James, MN, graduating from Augustana in Sioux Falls with a teaching degree.
