Over 90% of farms are family businesses. We spend every day working hard to make your farm profitable for your family's future.
Your family keeps us motivated and focused on protecting the future of the family farm, driving us to:
Protect your interests in Springfield, IL and Washington, DC

Help non-farmers understand who you are and what you do.
Members of the Illinois Corn Growers Association (ICGA) list "representation in Springfield, IL and Washington, DC" among the top three reasons they remain one of our over 4,000 members. And they are right! ICGA does a great job representing Illinois corn farmers on a state and a national level.
Illinois farmers have enjoyed the Yield Trend Endorsement, saving them money on their crop insurance, because of the work of ICGA. In fact, the work of ICGA contributed to the availability of crop insurance at all, as well as access to other farm programs, voluntary water quality standards, trade with other countries, and ethanol marketing opportunities.
Take a peek for yourself! We are doing great things for farmers ... and we'd love to do great things for you.
