Posted on February 25, 2013 at 5:01 PM by Iowa Corn

This week, corn growers from Iowa and across the nation will come together at Commodity Classic, the annual meeting for U.S. corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum farmers.

Pam Johnson, of Floyd, Iowa, currently is serving as president of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA). She is the first woman to hold the office. Johnson is a sixth generation farmer who raises corn and soybeans with her husband, two sons and their young families. They also manage a seed business and are member investors in ethanol and biodiesel plants.

On the national level, Johnson currently serves as a member of the Agri-Industry Council Executive Committee and represents NCGA with the National Coalition for Food and Agriculture Research and the National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center.  She is also a delegate to the U.S. Grains Council. Previously, Johnson chaired NCGA’s Research and Business Development Action Team and its Bylaws Committee. She also served as the board liaison to the NCGA Grower Services Action Team and the organizational liaison to the National Pork Producers Council..

In Iowa, Johnson is a director of the Iowa Corn Growers Association and former chair of the Iowa Corn Promotion Board.

Johnson took the office of NCGA president on Oct. 1 the same day her father died of pancreatic cancer. She is dedicating her year in office in honor of her parents, John and Bonnie Norby of Osage.

We salute Pam Johnson for representing Iowa corn farmers this week and throughout her years of service to our industry.
