DES MOINES, Iowa – Gov. Kim Reynolds will lead an all Iowa agricultural trade mission to China this summer.

She made the announcement Tuesday morning at her first weekly press conference as Iowa’s governor.

Representatives from commodity groups and the Farm Bureau will be along for the trip. This is the first time all of Iowa’s farm groups have come together for a trade mission.

It will take place July 19th through the 28th.

Participating agricultural organizations will pay for the trip.
