Iowa Farm Bureau and University of Iowa are offering Hawkeye fans a chance to win four tickets and on-field sideline access to the America Needs Farmers (ANF) Game on Oct. 21 against Minnesota. The prize package also includes a Kirk Ferentz autographed football and ANF gear. 

America Needs Farmers was launched by Hawkeye Coach Hayden Fry to show support for farmers during the 1980s Farm Crisis. In this same spirit, the ANF Game recognizes the hardworking men and women in agriculture whose work creates a positive impact in Iowa and across the globe.

“Through events like the ANF Game, we blend the football field and the farm field to showcase the characteristics each of the ‘players’ have in common—commitment, integrity and the drive to continuously improve upon their craft,” says Brent Johnson, Iowa Farm Bureau president. “These traits, coupled with advancements in agricultural technology and research, underline how farmers are increasing their productivity while using resources more efficiently and providing incredible levels of care for each individual animal on the farm."

For a chance to win, go to and take a short, multiple-choice quiz to learn how Iowa farmers are providing nutrient-dense food while caring for the environment and their animals. The contest runs through Oct. 11.

During ANF Game Day, Iowa Farm Bureau will be present at the ANF Legends Tent at Krause Family Plaza where fans can interact with local farmers, win prizes and get autographs from former Hawkeye greats, including this year’s ANF Wall of Honoree, Bryan Bulaga. ANF merchandise will also be for sale in ANF Plaza with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Iowa Food Bank Association. For more information, visit
