Illinois corn farmers serving as delegates to the National Corn Growers Association’s ‘Corn Congress’ are preparing their positions on grassroots policies brought not only by Illinois, but farmers from other states, as well.
Held in conjunction with the Commodity Classic meeting, ‘Corn Congress’ is the twice-yearly meeting of delegates representing member states in NCGA. Corn Congress will meet the morning of Feb 28 and also the afternoon of March 2, setting grassroots policy for NCGA.
