National Corn Growers Association membership climbed to even higher heights setting yet another membership record at the end of April, with 40,797 active members. This membership record replaces the former records, of 40,793, set in March of 2014 and 40,287, set in February of 2014.
“We’re elated to set yet another membership record and steady growth as we move through 2014,” said NCGA President Martin Barbre. “Our members recognize the value NCGA offers through its work to create and increase opportunities for all U.S. corn farmers. They understand and appreciate that grassroots efforts have been the strength and driving force behind their organization, pushing us to greater heights year after year.”
NCGA has members across the contiguous United States and works in cooperation with grower associations and state corn checkoff boards from 28 states, representing the interests of its members and the more than 300,000 growers who contribute corn checkoff funds in their states.
