The Iowa Corn Promotion Board® (ICPB), works to develop and defend markets, fund research, and provide education about corn and corn products. The Iowa Corn Growers Association® (ICGA) is a membership organization lobbying on agricultural issues on behalf of its 8,000 members. Both organizations work on the joint mission to create opportunities for long-term Iowa corn grower profitability.
The Mitchell County Corn Growers Association partnered with Sukup Manufacturing Co. to help fund a Safe T Home® at the Mitchell County Fairgrounds yesterday. The Safe T Home® is a new addition to the Little Farm Hands project, an interactive, educational experience related to life on an Iowa farm. Little Farm Hands was created in 2013 by the Mitchell County Corn and Soybean Associations. Last year, over 600 kids toured the barn for a hands-on learning experience about Iowa agriculture. The Safe T Home® expands the display allowing the youngest fairgoers an ongoing educational opportunity.
