The U.S. Custom Harvesters Incorporated annual convention was held in person in Des Moines, Iowa last week. USCHI President Glen Jantzen says turnout was very good. “It’s been such a challenging year and with all of the restrictions, we were fortunate. With the facility we had, we could be safe and do our proper social distancing. We were adamant we wanted an in-person convention and it went well.” Custom harvesters are optimistic as 2021 begins. “We’re all agriculture and every year, we’re hoping for a better year than last year. We’re all optimists. Everyone is thankful we’re seeing an improvement on things that affected us last year,” says Jantzen. “We’re going to continue working on challenges important to us including labor and Department of Transportation regulations. There is some uncertainty, but just the fact we can get together right now has people in a good mood.”
