Quotes

"The opportunity to lead an organization that amplifies the voice of Minnesota's corn farmers is an honor," Birr said. "Corn farmers face new challenges every day. Their continued commitment, through MCGA and MCR&PC, to stewardship, research, consumer engagement, renewable fuels and value-added agriculture will help overcome those challenges."
