Darrin Drollinger, Executive Director, was our host at the International Headquarters of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, whose logo appears above.  The ASABE is an educational and scientific organization dedicated to the advancement of engineering applicable to agricultural, food, and biological systems. Founded in 1907 and headquartered in St. Joseph, Michigan, ASABE comprises members in more than 100 countries. They publish three peer-reviewed journals and a bi-monthly member magazine.  The conference room had several models of farm equipment on display, this being the principle area of activity of most of the members.Thanks to Dolores Landeck, Director of Public Affairs, for arranging our visit.
