From our members…

“I joined KAWG because it supports more than just farm programs. My son is coming back to the farm right now. KAWG advocates a way of life. And I want to help protect that.” - Mike Jordan, Beloit

“Being a part of KAWG connects me with issues and news stories that are important to wheat growers. The Wheat and Row Crop Farmer Newsletter is my go-to source for cropping information.” - Jason Ochs, Syracuse

“Serving as a KAWG and then NAWG officer has opened my eyes to the need for leadership in our industry. There are hundreds of groups out there opposing farm programs and painting a sad picture of agriculture for our elected officials. We provide a voice to offset the negative comments.” - Paul Penner, Hillsboro

“Regulations, Regulations, Regulations. Whether the federal government wants to stop teenagers from working on the farm or require CDLs to operate farm equipment KAWG is a strong voice in ensuring our voices are heard in D.C.” - Justin Knopf, Salina

“I support KAWG because it works to carry a message about food to consumers. KAWG was a part of the group that took a combine and a 1/4 acre of growing wheat to our nation’s capitol - all to tell the story of wheat.” - Dean Stoskopf, Hoisington
