George Anton is affiliated with the Soil and Water Conservation Society and is the former Washington Bureau Chief for the Des Moines Register.

Anton states, "My credentials for covering agriculture were established in my first several weeks working for the Des Moines Register when I was assigned to cover the Iowa State Fair. And immediately--which is a treasured assignment, since the book “State Fair” was written by a Des Moines Register reporter--and I immediately identified in the caption some purebred swine as Herefords. It was the only time in my 40-some-year career at the Des Moines Register that I heard the words, “Stop the presses”."
