As our nation celebrates National Ag Week, let’s recognize the roots of “The Corn State” we call home. Iowa’s world-class corn production system didn’t occur overnight. It happened because of our rich natural resource base and several determined corn farmer-visionaries who put Iowa on the map. Iowa’s corn industry got a huge boost in 1967 when Walter Goeppinger of Boone had a vision of creating a state farmer-driven group and founded the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) after starting the National Corn Growers Association ten years earlier. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of ICGA which serves as the collective voice for our Iowa corn farmer-members, lobbying on ag issues at the state and federal level.
