Agronomy Appreciation Dinner in Ottawa, IL
Jerry Carroll stayed engaged with the audience and could relate to the same experiences they have had in their personal life. He has a unique way of finding humor in day to day on the farm activities. Jerry understood our industry and has done many of the same things we have. He had the crowd laughing like crazy!

Top Producer Meeting in Mt. Vernon, IL
Jerry Carroll did a bang up job. He arrived at our meeting 30 minutes prior to dinner. He mixed with the crowd before and after the meeting. He even worked one of our products into his presentation. He told good, down-to-earth stories, one right after the other. People actually had tears of laughter rolling down their cheeks. Everyone has raved about him since his program. I would recommend him to anybody for an after dinner speaker. He is all country. We might try to have him back next year."

Annual Banquet in Morrison, IL
The banquet entertainment from Jerry Carroll was a huge success. I have had so many people comment on how they connected with Jerry and actually got his message. They really did appreciate the opportunity to listen to his stories growing up and relating to him. His closing was my favorite part of the whole show, he brought up the part about Paul Harvey's speech God Made A Farmer. Thank you again. If you need any references for his future engagements please don't hesitate to use my name."
