Since 2004, our governor proclaimed one day a year to be Norman E. Borlaug Day in the state. This year, Governor of Minnesota Tim Walz declared October 16 Norman E. Borlaug Day, so we honor his legacy today and in the years going forward.
We celebrate the farmers and researchers that have brought us the food we have today and raise awareness to those who are less fortunate in our own communities and around the world in an effort to continue the fight against global hunger.
