    Its gone!

    I was driving to Ames from Des Moines today on 35, and noticed the stupid small billboard in the middle of the cornfield with the two farmers is gone. I don't know what the reason was for that to be there, but I can finally stop being annoyed with it

    It was part of a company's advertising for the Farm Progress Show. It was still there last Saturday. They had combined around it.

    My son called me to tell me where he was on the road with his dad and said they were driving by the Creepy Farmers. I knew exactly what he meant. I guess that landmark is gone.

    It was there for Winfield Solutions. There was also a large billboard behind it that said "Even our answers are bigger".

    Mystery creepy farmer billboard story is better.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    They were "out standing in their field."

    It was an advertisement.

    Curious... what are the billboard laws?

    Also, I somehow found those things kinda cool, to be honest.

    There's one off of 80 near Iowa City too. One looks like Will Ferrell.

    In rural areas, no new billboards can be built. Anything under x00 sq ft is not considered a billboard thus small political signs and cutouts are ok.
