Corn Farmers Coalition produces Corn Fact Book

The Corn Farmers Coalition campaign continues in Washington D.C. where corn farmers from 14 different states, along with the National Corn Growers Association continue to educate lawmakers on the importance of corn farming here in the U.S. The campaign is also educating the general public about farming by running radio ads, using billboards, and handing out booklets. This campaign is part of the Corn Farmers Coalition program and will last until August, which is when congress will break for recess.

One of the tools being used by in the coalition is the Corn Fact Book. This booklet features farmers from all across corn producing states. The booklet emphasizes on the family farm and tells how 95% of all corn farms in America are family owned and operated. It also hits on what corn farmers are doing today to produce more food and fuel with fewer resources. This educational tool provides the opportunity for others unfamiliar with agriculture to learn about how corn production has advanced over the past century and what farmers are doing today to feed a growing population.

You can find this fact book online or if you or someone you know may be interested in receiving a hard copy of the Corn Fact Book, contact the Nebraska Corn Board office at (402) 471-2676 or email ncb.intern2@nebraska.gov.
