Minnesota Corn Growers Association Senior Public Policy Director Amanda Bilek says it is important for farmers to be engaged in farm policy. “We started an initiative last fall called Minnesota Corn Grows Minnesota where we invited all of the gubernatorial candidates to come out and tour a corn farm.” Since last fall, ten candidates visited farms through this effort. “Some of them have since dropped out of the race, but we know they will still be active in political life and it is worth the investment to do this education.” RRFN’s Farmfest coverage is sponsored by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association.
