The Iowa Farm Bureau this week endorsed two Republicans, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig, for the November general election giving them the designation of “Friend of Agriculture.”

Iowa Farm Bureau is statewide, grassroots farm organization with 100 offices in Iowa’s 99 counties. 

Candidates who earn the designation of “Friend of Agriculture” do so by supporting issues that directly impact Iowa’s agricultural economy, farm families, and their communities.

The group noted Reynolds’ track record on agricultural issues. They cited her leadership in passing water quality funding, affordable health care for Iowans, and tax reform that includes provisions they believe will encourage continued economic and job growth.

They noted that since Naig was appointed Secretary of Agriculture by Reynolds he led the successful implementation of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy that will continue to advance water quality and soil conservation efforts in the state. They said, “he fully understands that agriculture, both crops and livestock, are key to growing a more prosperous Iowa.”

“With one in every five Iowans employed in agriculture and ag-related industries, we must elect leaders such as Governor Reynolds and Secretary Naig, who will continue to be champions for agriculture and the hard-working Iowa families who make their living feeding and fueling the world,” Cassie Hackman, a Chickasaw County farmer and Iowa Farm Bureau Federation PAC Chair, said.  “From water quality to affordable health care, to tax reform and job growth, Governor Reynolds and Secretary Naig have earned Iowa Farm Bureau’s endorsement and we need to keep them working to make our great state even better.”
