The Illinois Corn Marketing Board is a proud steward of the checkoff funds Illinois farmers contribute. With those funds, we do some pretty amazing things to build market demand, help others understand who Illinois farmers are, and invest in education and research in our state.
This year we’d simply like to say thank you. Thank you to the farmers that believe in our mission and entrust a bit of their earnings to us. Thank you to our partners that work so diligently to help us make Illinois agriculture a little bit better. Thank you to the leaders that created this system of giving back and those that guide us today.
We’re working every angle to make corn farming more profitable for Illinois farm families.
