Keith Kautz of West Liberty in Jasper County won a $500 gift card through Illinois Farm Bureau’s Choose Your News contest.

Kautz represents one of many who downloaded the FarmWeekNow.com app to be entered in the contest. The sweepstakes also allowed entries by signing up for the FarmWeekNow.com Daily Update. The contest ended May 31.

Kautz has a rich history with Farm Bureau. He serves on the Jasper County Farm Bureau board as vice president. He has been a Farm Bureau member for more than 20 years. His father was a past president of the Jasper County Farm Bureau.

“Raise it or eat it, all the information you need to know is on FarmWeekNow.com or on the app,” he said. “If I sleep in and miss DeLoss and Rita on the RFD Illinois morning show, I know I can always catch them on their podcast.”

Kautz plans to use some of his winnings to go on a fishing trip to Missouri.
