The National Corn Growers Association’s Corn Board elected Tom Haag to become the organization’s first vice president for the next fiscal year, which begins October 1.
Haag is a fourth-generation family farmer in south-central Minnesota. Along with his son, Nathan, he grows more than 1,700 acres of corn and soybeans.
“The quality and character of the men and women who step forward, generously giving their time and energy, never ceases to amaze me. I am confident that Tom will continue in this tradition,” said NCGA President John Linder. “In his state-level service, through work on Action Teams and as a member of the Corn Board, he has demonstrated an unwavering dedication to working on behalf of all of his fellow farmers. As he steps into this new role, I look forward to the work, collaboration, and growth that will help further our mission under his leadership.”
On the national level, Haag serves as the Corn Board liaison to the Market Development Action Team and as the Board liaison to the BNSF Railway Ag Business Council and the American Coalition for Ethanol.
On October 1, Linder of Ohio becomes chairman, and the current first vice president, Chris Edgington of Iowa, becomes NCGA president. In October 2022, Edgington becomes chairman, and Haag becomes president.
