The Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) brought 16
grower leaders to the Minnesota State Capitol for its annual Day on the Hill
last week. The group met with Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner
Thom Petersen and more than 25 legislators, including key legislative
leadership and chairs of committees that are important for MCGA policy
In each meeting, growers stressed the importance of enacting
federal tax conformity through Section 179, and property tax relief for farmers
by increasing the Ag 2 School Credit.
