ICG Announce 2011 Crop Fair Schedule

Theme this year is "Achieving a more profitable farming operation." Thanks to local sponsoring groups, there will be 20 crop fairs help across Iowa this winter and you get in for free.

The Iowa Corn Growers Association and Iowa Corn Promotion Board will again join with local sponsoring groups to host 20 free crop fairs across Iowa this winter. "Our crop fairs are an established tradition for many growers," says Don Mason, ICGA/ICPB director of grower services. "They make top experts available at local gatherings where farmers can ask questions and tap into the latest information on issues and topics that affect their profitability."
