Connecting corn to the world


A lot has changed since the corn checkoff was approved in Nebraska 30 years ago, but one of the most important is the work of the Nebraska Corn Board has done to build connections between corn and dozens of places and products.

Just take this from their news release on the subject:

Nebraska corn producers are connected to markets throughout Nebraska and the world. From the beef producer down the road to the ethanol plant in the next county, from pork served in Tokyo to a deli container in Atlanta, from a poultry producer in California to a feed mill in Egypt, and back home to expand opportunities to bring more dairies and livestock to rural communities.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

To celebrate, the Corn Board has published a 30-Year Report called, if you haven't guessed, "Creating Connections." It's online here, so be sure to check it out.
