May was Beef Month, and Joe Milledge, President and General Manager of KIIC-FM, Thunder Country Radio at Albia, Iowa knows how to celebrate it. Joe teamed up with the Iowa Cattleman’s Association and the Monroe County Beef Producers to serve over 400 burgers to truck drivers dumping corn at the Cargill Grain Processing facility in Eddyville, Iowa.
Joe issued an invite to Brownfield to be a part of the event. So I jumped in the SUV and traveled to Eddyville, not really sure what to expect. But never one to turn down a great burger I arrived at the plant with camera and appetite in hand. WOW, about 475 trucks were expected through the probe station that day. The truckers loved it, some just took their burger and continued through the station, while others dumped their corn and came back to relax at the tables and visit.
KIIC a Brownfield affiliate had speakers set up at the site and truckers were able to listen to many of the Brownfield programs KIIC carries. Milledge carries nearly every program Brownfield offers and had high praise for the programming.
Thanks Joe, I will be back next year.
