NCGA awards Sen. Chuck Grassley with highest honor

Senator Chuck Grassley took home a big award from the National Corn Growers Association yesterday.

The President’s Award is the highest honor given by the NCGA. They said the Senator’s leadership and commitment to advocating for Iowa’s corn growers and agriculture are what allowed him to stand out as the recipient. He was presented the award during the NCGA Corn Congress in Washington, D.C. yesterday.

“Chris Edgington, an Iowa corn farmer, is the President of the National Corn Growers. I had the privilege of receiving the highest honor that this organization gives. Chris Edgington introduced me and gave me this honor. I just want everybody to know that with or without this highest award that the National Corn Growers gives, I’m going to continue fighting for the family farmer in Iowa and that includes family farmers up outside of Iowa.”

Grassley said he is proud to be one of the only two farmers in the U.S. Senate, and he works every day to be a voice for American agriculture. He adds that he is tirelessly advocating for year-round E15 sales, which creates another source of revenue for corn growers.
