Glenn Dalling of Sugar City is being inducted into the 2016 Eastern Idaho Agriculture Hall of Fame for his contributions to production agriculture.
Growing up on the family farm, Dalling’s exposure to agriculture was diverse and began at a young age as his father grew potatoes, sugar beets, hay, grain and had milk cows and sheep. It was hard work, but Dalling enjoyed it all including hauling all the commodities using teams of horses.
Dalling graduated from Ricks College and received his master’s degree from BYU, all the while coaching, farming and working as an educator. He had 30 successful years working with Ricks College, primarily with the various sporting groups, and also served two terms as the mayor of Sugar City.
Among his many accomplishments, Dalling was instrumental and made significant contributions to the development of irrigation systems and grazing allotments in the Sugar, Salem, Hamer and Dubois areas. His background and success in farming and ranching set him apart as a leader in the progression and development of these areas to become productive agricultural areas.
He is married to the former Dorothy Heilison, and they are the parents of nine children.
