Countdown to Land O'Lakes Farm Bowl is on

The rosters of farmers and football players are beginning to take shape

The big game at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis is just over two months away, which means the countdown is also on until the Land O’Lakes Farm Bowl!

As a cooperative, our participation in the Super Bowl Host Committee helps us take advantage of high-profile opportunities to share our story with an audience that doesn’t know us or understand much about modern farming. Farm Bowl is all about elevating the story of modern agriculture and Land O’Lakes’ position as an innovative leader to new audiences of customers and consumers.

About Farm Bowl

On February 1 at Mariucci Arena on the campus of the University of Minnesota, Land O’Lakes Farm Bowl will pit teams of current and former professional football players and famers from the Land O’Lakes cooperative network against each other in a series of on-farm experiences and light-hearted, farm-themed challenges to demonstrate the skill, determination and grit required to succeed as a farmer today.

Just as the playoff picture is starting to come into focus in professional football, the Farm Bowl rosters are also beginning to take shape. Below is a list of the current farmer and football player participants slated to compete for the Farm Bowl trophy.
