2020 Summer Listening Tour

You’re invited to the 2020 Summer Listening Tour.  Kansas Corn hosts this annual listening tour to meet with corn farmers as well as industry partners to talk about the many issues surrounding the corn and agricultural industries. Enjoy a meal and refreshments while we dive into topics such as trade, ethanol, corn in all markets, education, and local issues. A key focus at each stop is to get feedback and listen to the attendees on questions or concerns they have. That feedback is then taken into consideration by the boards as we plan for Kansas Corn programming and investments.

For Your Safety, You Must Register to Attend

We are taking precautions due to concerns around COVID-19 in order to comply with all health directives currently in effect. With the shift in how in-person events are being hosted, we must require that you register yourself and any guests you are bringing. This will allow us to ensure there is adequate spacing, supplies and very importantly, food for supper!

Each dinner will be held from 6 to 8 p.m.

KCGA Members!

All KCGA Member attendees get a new metal member sign when they register and attend a listening tour stop!

Please note new dates for Shawnee County and Clay County stops.
