MCGA invites farmers to attend district meetings

MCGAThe Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) will be hosting six District Meetings around the state this fall. These meetings are free and open to all farmers.

The purpose of these meetings is to provide an opportunity for farmers to become better acquainted with recent activities of MCGA, as well as hear about what lies ahead for agriculture in Minnesota. There will also be a question and answer session with state MCGA staff and farmer leaders. Meetings will open with a short overview of MCGA’s plans for the future. There will also be a legislative update to inform farmers about new laws and other items from the last legislative session.

A feature of this year’s meetings is the Conservation Innovation Grant program. This program provides farmers with funding to implement new and innovative conservation practices on their farms. In addition, farmers will get an update on MCGA-funded research projects, learn about efforts to reach new markets, both at home and abroad, and will be brought up to date on changes in ethanol infrastructure and availability in the state.
