2021 Summer Listening Tour

Be our guest at the “Born for the Field” Summer Listening Tour! We hope you’ll join us at a stop on our 2021 Kansas Corn Summer Listening Tour. This year’s baseball-themed Born for the Field Summer Listening tour is connected with NCGA’s partnership with Major League Baseball’s Field of Dreams game in Dyersville, Iowa on Aug. 12 which will be broadcast nationally on FOX. KCGA is participating in NCGA’s Born for the Field promotions throughout the summer. Watch NCGA’s Born for the Field video here.

Kansas Corn hosts this annual listening tour to meet with corn farmers to talk about the many issues surrounding the corn and ag industries. Join us for the fun at one of five listening tour stops and two field days. We’ll have stadium snacks and refreshments and a great meal while we dive into topics such as trade, ethanol, corn 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. The grower feedback we receive is valued by the association and commission boards in their planning.
