FFA leads to great things for Reimer

LEXINGTON – Lexington High School graduate and University of Illinois student Jordan Reimer credits his time in the FFA with helping him develop knowledge of the ag world.

Reimer has launched a new ag business with his father known as LEADS the Way LLC.

“We are Lexington Elite Ag Drone Services,” explains Reimer.

The drone fungicide application business hopes to help farmers in the area administer fungicides. This business idea came from a friend who works for a custom farming business which also has a drone business. They sprayed 100,000 acres last year with around 20 drones.

“His knowledge and what he knows with the drones kind of led me to take this chance and hit the ground running with it,” said Reimer.

Reimer is a U of I sophomore studying Crop Science Agribusiness and continues to learn more than he ever imagined.

“I continue to learn each and every day.”

During his time with the Lexington FFA chapter, Reimer was president his sophomore year and participated in activities such as soils judging and livestock judging. He was never involved in agronomy but always wanted to try it.

“All of those events I was involved with helped lead me to a passion for the ag industry,” said Reimer. “FFA kind of helped me effectively grow my knowledge and understanding of the ag world.”

The Reimers have a corn and soybean operation near Lexington and do no-till and strip-till. Even while attending college, Reimer still finds time to help out on the farm when he can. You can occasionally see him driving the tandem truck to and from the grain elevator or hopping in the auger cart tractor.

“Lexington is a great small-knit community where everyone knows each other,” added Reimer.

LEADS the Way LLC can be found on Facebook or you can e-mail: for more information.
