This week on the podcast we’re in Underwood, Iowa (pop. 917) with sixth generation farmers Kevin and Sara Ross. We’re talking about Kevin and Sara’s important role in connecting with farmers and advocating for agriculture, including Kevin’s new role as President of the National Corn Growers Association. We also touch on life on the farm with their four boys, the importance of technology and connectivity in farming and rural America, Sara’s involvement with CommonGround, and some great stories around her transition to farm life.
You may also learn a few things, like how corn is the only crop grown in all 50 states, and there are over 4000 uses of corn! We’re excited to follow along with Kevin as the President of the National Corn Growers Association, and encourage you to do the same, so head to the show notes for those links. We want to wish all of our Iowa Corn farmers - and farmers everywhere - a safe and successful harvest.
