Delegates to the Minnesota Corn Growers Association’s (MCGA) recent annual meeting at MN Ag EXPO 2016 in Mankato re-elected four family farmers to its board of directors.
Bruce Peterson, Northfield, was re-elected to represent District 3. Tom Haag, Eden Valley; Ryan Buck, Goodhue, and Gerald Mulder, Renville, were elected to at-large positions. Peterson, Haag and Buck have previously served as MCGA president.
“Minnesota’s corn farmers are fortunate to have these four strong and experienced voices for agriculture back on the MCGA board,” said Noah Hultgren, a family farmer in Raymond and current MCGA president. “Whether it’s standing up for corn farmers in St. Paul and Washington, working to grow the use of homegrown ethanol fuel or supporting farmer-funded research, MCGA remains in a strong position to amplify the voices of Minnesota corn farmers.”
MCGA has over 7,000 members, making it one of the largest grassroots agriculture organizations in the United States. Working in close partnership with the Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council, MCGA strives to create new opportunities for corn farmers and improve quality of life.
