Farmers’ opinions valued at Iowa Corn Growers Association policy roundtables

Jul 01, 2014

JOHNSTON — The Iowa Corn Growers Association has announced the 2014 farmer roundtable meetings for this July as part of its annual policy development process.

The sessions at all roundtable meetings will include a free dinner.

“The farm roundtable is where any [Iowa Corn Growers Association] member can bring up an issue or a policy we should pursue,” explained Roger Zylstra, ICGA president and a farmer from Lynnville. “Ideas that get a thumbs-up from the roundtable will go on to the ICGA policy conference and can even end up as policy for the National Corn Growers Association. This is your chance to make things happen through ICGA.”

• July 9, Arnold’s Park, Arnold’s Park Majestic Pavilion, 5-8 p.m.
