2020 Ag Breakfast Recap
The Chamber was pleased that the Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig was able to join members virtually for the 38th Annual Ag Breakfast. Secretary Naig touched on the recent derecho, the impact of COVID-19 on agriculture, and opportunities for the future.
"As we think about what happens next, as we think about recovery, the premise here is not that we’re going to try to get back to where we were, we’re going to spring forward," he said. "We are still Iowa and we are still a strong agriculture state. It’s a good thing to be coming at recovery from a position of strength rather than just trying to hang on."
