Kansas Corn Symposium Scheduled
01/10/2019
 
Kansas corn producers are invited to the Kansas Corn Symposium to celebrate the accomplishments of Kansas Corn and look to the future on topics including ethanol, trade and research. The Symposium will be held on Jan. 23 at the K-State Alumni Center in Manhattan. All corn producers are welcome to attend the symposium.
 
The event will begin with the KCGA Annual meeting where association members will weigh in on policy priorities, vote on the three southern board members for southwest, south central and southeast districts, and receive timely state and national policy updates.
 
The Symposium will focus on Kansas Corn’s efforts to build markets for corn in all forms including efforts to increase availability and use of higher ethanol blends in retail stations in Kansas, and the introduction of a new consumer focused higher-ethanol blends campaign. Kansas Corn will celebrate the completion of Class 2 of the Kansas Corn Corps young grower program and the first class of the Collegiate Academy. Winners of Kansas Corn’s Next Generation Scholarships will be announced. Winners of the first Kansas Corn Yield Contest will be honored, followed by a networking social with research partners.
 
The keynote speaker at the Kansas Corn Dinner, Andrea Durkin, Editor in Chief of TradeVistas will give an outlook on trade and its effects on farm and local economies. The evening will conclude with recognition of two Kansas Corn Impact Award winners.
 
This year, Kansas corn is offering two pre-session opportunities beginning at 10 a.m. Growers can choose between a session on understanding trade impact on your farm, or an Engage training to sharpen skills to effectively communicate with consumers.
 
Farmers who participate in the Kansas Corn Symposium on Jan. 23 encouraged to stay to attend the Kansas Commodity Classic which takes place at the K-State Alumni Center the next day. The Kansas Classic is the annual convention of Kansas corn, grain sorghum, soybean and wheat associations.
 
Registration is free, thanks to support from our sponsors. Growers are asked to register for accurate meal counts at kscorn.com/symposium or by calling 785-410-5009.
