Feeding Livestock with Kansas Corn

Livestock

Livestock is the #1 customer of Kansas corn. Corn is a key ingredient in livestock feed and as Kansas is a leading beef cattle feeding state, the crop is of major importance to the success of this industry. The Kansas Corn Commission (KCC) actively works to build markets for livestock

  • Actively supports the U.S. Meat Export Federation to build export markets for red meat. Kansas Corn was the first corn checkoff in the nation to support USMEF and has funded their efforts for nearly 40 years.
  • Cooperates with the Kansas Beef Council and Kansas Pork Council on market development efforts for beef and pork.
  • Supports advocacy efforts to help increase consumer knowledge about the sustainable and humane production of beef and pork by working with groups like U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance and the Kansas Farm Food Connection.
