Colorado Corn, based in Greeley, is made up of the Colorado Corn Growers Association and Colorado Corn Administrative Committee. The Colorado Corn Growers Association (CCGA) is comprised of dues-paying members who are politically active, focusing on policy that impacts corn producers and agriculture in general. The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) oversees how Colorado’s corn check-off dollars (one penny per bushel of corn produced in the state) are spent on research, market development, outreach, education and other various endeavors. See more about the work of the two organizations at www.coloradocorn.com.
The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) is hosting a “Sustainability Communication Workshop” near Fort Collins in September — an event that will be led by the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA), and provide valuable training for producers and industry professionals alike.
We’re extending an invitation to all corn growers, as well as representatives of all other agricultural sectors. USFRA will provide findings from recent research surrounding consumer perceptions in sustainability, and send participants home with tools and takeaways on how to communicate messages of sustainability in ag.
It will take place Thursday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., at the CoBank Center for Agricultural Education (4492 E. County Road 56 near Fort Collins), located within CSU’s Agricultural Research and Development Education Center (ARDEC).
The event is free to attend, and will include lunch. We ask those wanting to attend toplease RSVP by Wednesday, Sept. 21, to the Colorado Corn office, at 970-351-8201, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
