As a farmer, you work from dawn to dusk. You plan.  You  budget. You worry. You sweat. You hope. You pray. And yet, one stroke of a pen in Washington, DC can do as much to make or break your profitability as the thousands of hours you devote to your crop each season.

NCGA Showcases the Benefits and Uses of Corn at Petfood Forum (Wed, 22 Sep 2021)
This week, the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is highlighting the benefits of corn in pet food and packaging opportunities at the Petfood Forum in Kansas City, Missouri. This is the pet food industry’s largest event, with exhibitors and attendees from various backgrounds including research and development, technology and packaging providers, ingredient suppliers and retailers. The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and the Kansas Corn Growers Association had a booth at the event to interact with these stakeholders. “It’s important for us to engage with the pet food industry and audience, because a recent study found that retail pet food is a $30 billion industry, with corn and corn gluten meal as the top two most used plant-based ingredients in pet food products,” said NCGA Market Development Manager Michael Granché. “This was an opportunity for us to not only discuss the benefits of corn in pet food, but also talk about the role corn can play beyond the bowl in applications such as pet food packaging and pet products.” While at the event, NCGA shared its corn in pet food materials, including technical research, fast facts, Corn MythBusters and the top 10 reasons to include corn in pet food. The information in the materials came from a study conducted by Kansas State University in which NCGA partnered with the Kansas Corn Growers Association to look at corn in pet food.

Sustainable Synergies Between Corn and Beef Production Cattlemen to Cattlemen Episode Airs Next Week on RFD-TV (Tue, 21 Sep 2021)
Beef and Corn: Working Together in a Sustainable System is the topic of the upcoming panel show on the National Cattlemen Beef Association’s (NCBA) series Cattlemen to Cattlemen on RFD-TV. Panelists will discuss sustainability practices on their farms, the benefits of next-generation feed products, how the ethanol industry has impacted corn and beef producers, and more. The episode was filmed at the Certified Angus Beef headquarters in Wooster, Ohio with panelists from the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), NCBA, and Certified Angus Beef (CAB). The episode will air on Tuesday, September 28th on RFD-TV at 8:30 PM ET. “It is important for corn farmers and beef producers to work together so both industries remain sustainable, both environmentally and economically, for the years to come,” said NCGA President John Linder. “Beef cattle is one of our largest customers. One out of four bushels of added corn demand is due to beef and pork exports, with the beef industry providing $5.7 billion in corn value and consuming 1.2 billion bushels of grain. DDGS account for nearly 8 percent of total domestic corn usage.” NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen is a television show for cattlemen created by cattlemen. The episode featuring corn growers is not scheduled yet but will air on RFD-TV. The show is hosted by Colorado cattle producer Kevin Ochsner. Panel participants include Bruce Cobb, Executive Vice President of Production for Certified Angus Beef; NCGA President and Ohio farmer John Linder; Brandon Hunnicutt, a Nebraska farmer and NCGA corn board member; Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association Vice President Ben Klick, who raises both corn and beef; and NCBA President-Elect and Minnesota farmer Don Schiefelbein. NCGA’s Market Development Action Team (MDAT) funded this initiative. The episode will air on Tuesday, September 28th on RFD-TV at 8:30 PM ET. You can watch last year’s episode here.
