IAM’s Day on the Hill took place virtually this year via Zoom. On Monday March 1st, our group of irrigators, land owners, researchers and industry representatives met with legislators in both the House and the Senate to have a conversation about our bill, agriculture and irrigation and the impact of policies on the ag industry.
Events like this give us an opportunity to tell our story and educate individuals who might not be familiar with irrigation in the state of Minnesota. It also allows us to continue to build on as well as make new relationships with lawmakers in St.Paul.
Attendees to the IAM virtual Day on the Hill heard about the value of irrigation to Minnesota’s agricultural industries including farming and processing.
