Podcast: Annual leadership program heading to Washington

In this podcast, Steve Nelson, a farmer from Schuyler and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, gives a preview of next week's leadership program in Washington that he and 14 other Nebraska corn growers will participate in.

This is the Nebraska Corn Growers Association’s 18th annual leadership program, which helps farmers better understand all the activities inside the Beltway and how what goes on there impacts farmers on a daily basis. "It also helps people who work in D.C. better understand our needs and concerns," Nelson said. "After all, who better to hear from on issues surrounding corn and agriculture than direct from a farmer?"

While in D.C., the groups will also meet with the Washington-based staff of the National Corn Growers Association. Nelson explained that NCGA helps organize portions of this grassroots effort.

The leadership program is supported by the Nebraska Corn Board and Farm Credit Services of America and we thank them for their commitment to this important grassroots effort.
