Growing opportunities for Kentucky's corn farmers in a changing industry. 

Leaders Look at Big Issues during Corn Congress


KyCorn Vice President Mark Roberts was among hundreds of the nation’s corn farmers earlier this month, as he and other Kentucky leaders represented local interests during the semi-annual Corn Congress in San Antonio. Delegates
listened to committee reports and lobbied to shape National Corn Growers Association
policy that will best serve Kentucky’s corn growers. Primary issues of concern were
the 2018 Farm Bill, trade and ethanol. We would like to thank our leadership for
their time and dedication to our industry. Also in attendance were KyCorn Board
members Richard Strode, Richard Preston, Michael Buckman, and Micah Lester, as
well as KyCorn Promotion Council member Russell Schwenke.
