The National Corn Growers Association’s annual report for the 2015 fiscal year is now available online. A printed copy of the report, which highlights the association’s achievements over the previous year and features current financial information, will also be sent to all active members and made available at upcoming meetings.
“We remember not too long ago the concerns over corn availability,” said NCGA President Chip Bowling, a grower from Maryland. “That was a short-term view of the world corn growers knew was changing. Corn farmers were going long by investing in equipment, technology and know-how to life production to a new plateau to meet and exceed demand. And did farmers ever succeed.
“This is why we, as farmers and a member-driven organization, can never take our eye of thee demand-building opportunities that exist today and those that are, for now, mere dreams. We must defend and grow the successful demand-builders like ethanol, exports and livestock as well as the many small opportunities that together make a big difference.”
Themed “Going Long,” the 2015 report spotlights efforts made by NCGA throughout the year to make long-term, strategic goals to improve the future of the industry by increasing demand. Including perspective from grower leaders, information about the activities of NCGA’s action teams and committees and updates on its major image programs, the report provides a comprehensive resource for anyone looking to delve further into what NCGA does for our nation’s farmers.
