Sarah McKay Named NCGA’s New Director of Market Development

The National Corn Growers Association would like to announce that Sarah McKay, manager of market development, has been promoted to the role of director. McKay joined NCGA in August of 2017. She replaces Jim Bauman, who was promoted to the position of vice president of market development.
“Since coming to NCGA, Sarah has made a huge impact on our work and relationship with our animal agriculture industry partners,” said Jim Bauman, vice president of market development. “Sarah has taken the lead on a number of sustainability initiatives for NCGA and has helped shape the Feed, Food and Industrial Action Team into what it is today. Her work and knowledge of issues impacting the livestock industry has been an important asset for NCGA.”

Before coming to NCGA, McKay worked as a part of the procurement / supply chain team supporting dairy operations at General Mills. She interned with both Senator Mark Warner and former Representative Eric Cantor. McKay has a master’s degree in agricultural and applied economic management from Virginia Tech and bachelor’s degrees in both animal and poultry sciences, and agricultural applied economics with an emphasis in international trade and development.

Most consumers don’t know how their food is grown. Big companies use words like “organic, non-GMO” as marketing terms to sell products and not to inform. The only way things will change is if you tell your story. It needs to be heard in classrooms, newsrooms and state capitols across the country. Local, state, and federal decision makers need to hear from you! It’s time to “Stand Up for Corn!” Be an advocate and stand with us on social media.
