2021 Ag Breakfast @ The Music Man Square
Mar 23 @ 7:00 am – 8:30 am

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig and Bushel Boy Farms President Chuck Tryon are the headliners for the 39th annual Ag Breakfast. The event, which celebrates Ag Week, is scheduled from 7-8:30AM on Tuesday, March 23 at The Music Man Square.

The format has been modified to accommodate physical distancing and safety measures. The much beloved tradition of made-to-order omelets cooked by Agribusiness committee members will be replaced by quiche and donuts. In-person attendance will be limited to 150, and a Zoom webinar link will be provided to participants choosing to attend virtually.

In addition to the keynote speakers, the committee will recognize Century Farms and the Alpha Media “Farmer of the Year.
