Iowa Congressman David Young is scheduled to be joined by Iowa Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey for the annual "Bringing in the Harvest" tour on Friday. They will tour family farms, cooperatives, and agribusinesses to learn more about issues affecting Iowa's farmers and agriculture economy.
“The pulse of Iowa’s economy is agriculture. The heart of our state is our farmers. Each fall gives Iowans the opportunity to take special time to appreciate farmers and this remarkable process called the harvest," said Congressman Young. "It makes me proud to be an Iowan.”
Congressman Young will hear from Iowa's farmers about this year's harvest, the importance of trade for Iowa's agriculture economy, and concerns they have which Congressman Young can take to Washington.
Stops include Rose Acre Farms in Guthrie Center, the Henry A. Wallace Country Center in Orient, Milk Unlimited, Inc. in Atlantic, POET in Corning, the Water Quality Demo Project in Sharpsburg and a listening session in Mount Ayr.
