Rix recently returned from Washington, D.C., where he took part in Corn Congress, the annual summer visit the National Corn Growers Association makes to the nation’s capital. The organization set goals and South Dakota Corn members met with the state’s delegation and with FSA administrator Zach Ducheneaux, who hails from South Dakota as well.

It was a successful visit, according to Rix, because they were able to make some movement and get other states on board with what South Dakota producers see as a need to update base acres in the farm bill.

“It’s something that we care about in South Dakota mostly because a lot of our acres came from pasture ground,” he said.
