KyCorn Presents Check for UK Grain and Forage Center of Excellence at Field Day
KyCorn farmer leaders presented the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment a check for $64,000 today to support the Grain and Forage Center for Excellence. The funds were raised through the KyCorn/UK Benefactor Lifetime Membership Program, where corn growers contribute $1,000 in dues for the lifetime membership. Of those dues, $750 is donated and matched by KyCorn for the Center to conduct corn-focused research. To date, 42 corn farmers have participated in the program.
The setting for the check presentation was the UK Corn, Soybean and Tobacco Field Day. Several of UK's extension experts presented on KyCorn funded research.
