Colleen Ziller prepares to lay straw down inside her families dairy barn Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 at her farm in Grafton Township, between Huntley and Union. Net income for farmers is expected to fall by nearly 32 percent this year due to high corn and soybean prices and rising expenses of farming. The Zillers family grows corn, soy, and wheat along with their dairy and beef cattle.
