Iowa Corn Growers Association Shows Strength in Numbers at Day on the Hill Event

March 28, 2024

Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) members filled the State Capitol rotunda yesterday for the “Iowa Corn Day on the Hill” lobbying event to share what matters most to them and their family farms. The delegation included ICGA board members, county leaders, grassroots members and FFA students from across the state. While in attendance, corn farmers took time to share their personal farm stories with state lawmakers and advocate for corn related policies.

“It is so important to show up and to engage with our legislators. That’s why our ‘Iowa Corn Day on the Hill’ event is such a remarkable indicator of what’s to come in ag policy. During the day we facilitate one-on-one interactions with state legislators where members can discuss and promote ICGA policy priorities and issues important to all of Iowa agriculture,” stated Iowa Corn Growers Association President Jolene Riessen, a farmer from Ida Grove, Iowa. “The dedication and engagement of our members allow ICGA to have a strong, unified voice at the State Capitol on issues impacting corn farmers in Iowa.”

As a long-standing, well-respected agricultural organization, the Iowa Corn Growers Association serves as a collective voice for Iowa’s corn farmers on agricultural issues at the state and federal level. Grassroots members from across the state are the backbone of our organization and the driving force behind our policy development and implementation efforts. We continue to work towards fair policy that protects the interest of our members and the Iowa corn industry.

If you missed this Day on the Hill event, we encourage you to contact your legislators by other means, including by participating in calls to action or attending local town halls. To see ICGA’s full list of state and federal priorities for 2024, visit iowacorn.org/policy.
