Back in 1985, in the midst of a national Farm Crisis, legendary Iowa Hawkeye coach Hayden Fry created a decal for his team’s football helmets to show support for struggling farm families. The emblem, with the letters “A-N-F”, stood for “America Needs Farmers.”
Today, we continue to recognize the importance of America’s farm families, with the ANF emblem and the annual ANF football game at Kinnick Stadium.
