Podcast: Corn Farmers Coalition taking messages to D.C.

In this podcast, Curt Friesen, a member of the Nebraska Corn Board and a farmer from Henderson, talks about the latest efforts of the Corn Farmers Coalition.

The Corn Farmers Coalition works inform policymakers in Washington, D.C., about the positive changes in corn farming over the last few decades. Farmers in Nebraska and across the country and the National Corn Growers Association launched a new communication effort a few weeks ago – and many farmers who are in D.C. for Corn Congress this week will get to see some of the ads first hand.

Friesen noted that people need to know that there are real family farmers all across the country working hard to produce feed, food and fuel. The decisions made in D.C. directly impact all these families – real people who make a living off the land.

He said it is important for people to hear and see messages like those being used as part of the Corn Farmers Coalition campaign. People need to know about the good job farmers do and how we can feed and help fuel the world while caring for the environment and being sustainable, he said.
