Farmers: You're invited to attend MCGA's "What you Need to Know" district meetings

MNcorn_PMS124FINALAre you a farmer with questions about changes to Minnesota’s buffer laws? Do you want to know more about telling the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to not mess with the RFS (Renewable Fuel Standard) and homegrown ethanol?

Would you like insight into conservation programs from local experts? How about an update on ag-related items from the recently completed Minnesota legislative session?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’ll want to attend one of six “What you Need to Know” district meetings hosted by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) in July.

Each meeting is free to attend for all farmers and refreshments will be served. In addition to MCGA staff, farmers will hear from local Soil and Water Conservation District personnel and other ag professionals for the latest updates on buffers, the RFS, conservation tools and other important ag-related legislative items.
