Farmers douse DC with the Facts

Posted on June 21, 2011

Providing honest answers with sound science backing might not be the norm in Washington D.C., but it’s what the Corn Farmers Coalition brings to the capitol for the third year in row.

The Corn Farmers Coalition is an alliance between the National Corn Growers Association and 14 state organizations which seek to educate policy-makers in Washington about how innovative farmers are growing more corn every year with fewer resources while protecting the environment. Real messages from real farmers aimed directly at our nation’s congressmen and women.

The campaign which was kicked off earlier this month will run until the end of July and includes signs like the one above sharing important messages with facts about today’s farmers. The campaign includes “station saturation” in the D.C. Metro meaning that every ad is part of the Corn Farmers Coalition. The media mix also includes Union Station, Capitol Hill publications, websites, radio and Reagan National Airport.

“This is a great opportunity for farmers to proactively tell their story to not just America’s politicians but also to the millions of consumers who either live or travel through our nation’s capitol,” said Chad Blindauer, President of the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council.
