Latham Seeds Salutes Farmers at Hy-Vee’s INDYCAR Race Weekend

Alexander, Iowa – From the first lap in fields every spring to the final lap at harvest, Latham Seeds has always been committed to helping farmers grow.

That’s why Latham Seeds is sponsoring the 75th lap in the Hy-Vee INDYCAR race this Sunday – to salute farmers as it celebrates its own 75th milestone as a family-owned, farm-proven company.

“Saluting farmers is something we have done ever since our grandfather established Latham Seeds back in 1947 right here in Iowa,” says John Latham, company president. “But it’s something we are especially proud to celebrate this year during our 75th anniversary.”

This Sunday in Newton, Latham Seeds will be at the Iowa Speedway for the final day of the Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend. The Salute to Farmers 300 event is exactly where the company wants to be. As drivers make their 75th lap on “the fastest short track on the planet,” Latham Seeds will be there for the action as a strong supporter of America’s farmers.

Latham Seeds provides the latest seed genetics, highest quality products and unparalleled hometown service to dealers and growers across the Midwest. The company just wrapped up its annual Dealer Kickoff event in downtown Des Moines, where farmers were recognized for their longtime partnerships with Latham Seeds – and treated to a 75th celebration that included a preview of new products, sales tools, industry updates and a birthday party at Living History Farms.

“We are always working with farmers as partners in their success,” John Latham says. “They’re like family to us.”

Live coverage of the Hy-Vee Salute to Farmers 300 event will be available on NBC, SiriusXM and the INDYCAR Radio Network. Look for Latham Seeds’ commercial, airing in nine Midwest markets.
