Crop Insurance Meetings
Our annual crop insurance meetings are set for the last week in January 2014, and we’re pleased to announce that Stu Voigt, former Minnesota Vikings tight end, will be the headline speaker for the event. Stu’s speech, titled The Winning Edge, focuses on the “work hard, go far” mentality that you need to be successful in any career—whether it’s professional football, sales or farming.
Stu Voigt played 11 years with the Minnesota Vikings. He started in three Superbowls and finished his career as the Vikings all-time leading tight end receiver holding records in yardage, receptions and touchdowns. He was also a premiere blocking tight end. Voigt was named to the Vikings All-Time team in 1985 and in 2010 named as one of the 50 Greatest Vikings.
Voigt had an illustrious career at the University of Wisconsin where he lettered in football, baseball and track. He was the Badgers MVP in football in 1969 and is the Big 10’s last three sport letterman. Voigt was elected to the Wisconsin Hall of Fame in 2000. He received his BBA and Masters Degree from the UW where he majored in management.
Voigt is currently involved in the real estate and banking business in Minneapolis. He has worked in the broadcast industry as a commentator for Viking and Badger football since his retirement in 1980. Stu and his wife, Linda, currently live in Apple Valley, Minnesota.
The annual meeting is sponsored by Ihry Insurance to bring in regional experts to discuss the outlook on area crops for 2014 and beyond. Along with Voigt, we have three other speakers lined up to attend.
Area farmers and those interested in agriculture are invited to attend. This meeting is open to the public. Space is limited. If you have any questions, please contact our Hope office at 1-888-726-7929.
