Podcast: NCGA President's address at Commodity Classic

In this podcast, Dan Nerud of Dorchester and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, shared about the messages from the  presidents of the commodity membership associations for corn, soybeans, sorghum and wheat who were interviewed on stage during the 2013 Commodity Classic General Session. This year, Pam Johnson was featured. Pam is the president of the National Corn Growers Association and a family farmer from Iowa. Pam's primary message had to do with the need for America's farmers to be more vocal about sharing our story as farmers.

Pam did not mince words when it came to expressing her concern and frustration over the gridlock in Congress over not getting a farm bill passed. The National Corn Growers Association is 36,000 members strong. That's why president Pam Johnson challenged all of us to step up and leverage those numbers to make things happen on Capitol Hill.
