The Nebraska Corn Growers Association has announced the next class of the PRIME Program.
Over the course of this year, eight participants will come together for three seminars to learn and discuss new ideas to bring back to their own farms.
The PRIME Program was founded in 2017 as a way for those newer or younger farmers who are not as interested in policy to be involved in the association.
Class II participants include Derek Dam of Hooper.
The PRIME Program is made possible with funding from presenting partners, Northwestern Mutual and Farm Credit Services, along with the Nebraska Corn Board. For more information about the PRIME Program, visit necga.org
