Join Kansas Corn at 2023 Summer Listening Tour in August

Kansas corn farmers are invited to Kansas Corn’s Summer Listening Tour, hosting dinners in six Kansas communities. Kansas Corn will focus on farmer discussion around the issues that matter to corn growers at the dinners. Growers can connect with Kansas Corn in Tampa, McCune, Scranton, Denton, Satanta and Grainfield. This is the eighth year of the popular listening tour dinners.

“As always, this year’s Kansas Corn Summer Listening Tour will focus around the work we do daily on behalf of Kansas corn growers,” says Emily Koop, Kansas Corn director of grower services and market development. “We want to hear about both the successes and challenges facing our farmers and the corn industry. This tour gives us the chance to hear directly from growers and the more voices in attendance, the better the feedback we receive.”

Kansas Corn hosts this annual listening tour to meet with corn farmers to talk about the many issues surrounding the corn and ag industries. Kansas Corn staff will briefly update growers on key topics including the upcoming Farm Bill, ethanol efforts and commission-funded research. Each stop will feature a roundtable discussion around key topics and issues facing attendees. The goal of each stop is to get feedback from corn growers, which is valued by the association and commission boards in their planning.

Attendees are asked to register for these summer events online at kscorn.com or by calling the Kansas Corn office at 785-410-5009.
