Veteran farm broadcaster Rita Frazer was in Effingham Wednesday to speak at the annual Rural-Urban Luncheon sponsored by the Effingham Noon Rotary Club.

Frazer is a host along with Alan Jarand of "RFD Illinois", heard weekday mornings on KJ Country 102.3.

Frazer said with the drought behind us, most producers are optimistic about this year's crop and about growing supplies of livestock.

Rotary holds the Rural-Urban Luncheon to thank members of the agricultural community for their work to feed the world.
