“For a rural property professional there is no comparison to the atmosphere, education, and industry exposure you receive while attending ASFMRA Summer Education Week. The environment is such that even though most of the time you are essentially sitting next to a competitor, everyone is there for improvement and willing to share ideas, thoughts and experiences that will make each business better.“

-Tim Cobb, Hatley/Cobb Farmland Management 



ASFMRA has the support of sponsors, and in 2014 Bayer CropScience, Crop Production Services, DuPont Pioneer, Farmers National Company, Halderman Farm Management, Hertz Farm Management, Midwest Insurance Corporation, Monsanto, Mycogen, Soy Capital Ag Services, Syngenta, United Soybean Board, Waddell & Reed, Western Agricultural Services and Wyffels Hybrids supported the event by sponsoring lunches, breaks and dinners. Some of the dinner events took us to places in Des Moines that we otherwise would not get to see, like DuPont Pioneer’s headquarters, or Monsanto’s dinner at the World Food Prize Foundation and Syngenta’s barbeque at West End Architectural Salvage.

We would love to see all of our sponsors back to support this event in a big way in 2015!
