SHAKOPEE - Tom Haag, a farmer from Eden Valley and past president of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, has been elected to serve on the National Corn Growers Association's corn board.

Haag, who was elected last week during the association's Corn Congress in Washington, D.C., said he's eager to give Minnesota "a voice" on the National Corn Board.

"When it comes to issues like ethanol, conservation, research and public policy, I feel that we're very forward-looking here in Minnesota," he said in a news release. "I want to bring that forward-looking vision and attitude to help strengthen the National Corn Board."

Haag is a fourth-generation farmer and currently farms with his son, Nathan.

Haag also serves on the National Corn Growers Association Research and Business Development action team, previously served on the grower services team and recently graduated from the advanced leadership program.

In Minnesota, Haag chairs the Minnesota Corn Growers Association government relations committee and served as state president in 2012-13.

Haag is the first Minnesotan to serve on the National Corn Board since Jerry Larson, from Elbow Lake, retired in 2011.
