MCGA represents state’s ag sector at President Trump roundtable

MCGA directors Bryan Biegler, Les Anderson, Kirby Hettver, Tim Waibel and Brian Thalmann attended the roundtable

President Donald Trump was in Burnsville on Monday for a Tax Day roundtable, and the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) was invited to be part of the event representing the state’s ag sector.

While not able to speak directly with President Trump, the roundtable was a great opportunity for MCGA directors to discuss the importance of trade, E15 and more with state and federal officials in attendance.

“It was an honor to represent Minnesota’s corn growers at President Trump’s roundtable on taxes and the economy, and we thank the administration for inviting us to this event,” MCGA President Brian Thalmann said. “While everyone has differing views on politics, it is important we work with those elected to create positive outcomes for corn farmers and all of agriculture. We appreciated the chance to connect with several state and national officials and discuss how we can build a brighter future.”
