Tom Haag, a family farmer near Eden Valley, Minn., and Past President of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA), is running for a seat on the National Corn Growers Association’s (NCGA) Corn Board.
Haag is a fourth-generation farmer and currently farms with his son, Nathan. He currently serves on NCGA’s Research and Business Development action team and previously served on the Grower Services team. In Minnesota, Haag chairs MCGA’s Government Relations committee. He served as MCGA President in 2012-13.
“NCGA’s strength comes from a combination of its excellent grower leadership, dedicated staff and consistent reliance upon a grassroots approach,” Haag told NCGA.com. “Looking forward, we must not only continue to draw upon these strengths but push ourselves even further to create the social, political, economic and regulatory landscape in which future generations of our families can continue to flourish on the farm.”
NCGA Corn Board elections are held on July 20 during Corn Congress in Washington D.C.
