Podcast: At the State Fair: Blood drive, backpacks, the Beef Pit, fuel discounts and more!

In this podcast, Joel Grams, a farmer from Minden and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, gives all the details involving corn growers at the 2012 Nebraska State Fair.

In addition to an exhibit in the main exhibition building, corn growers are conducting the final Stalk Up the Blood Supply and Pig Out blood donation drive on August 31 at the YWCA in Grand Island (212 East Fonner Park Road), from 8 a-m to 2 p-m.

NeCGA also partnered with the Corn Board to provide backpack bags to the 3,000 students who are taking part in Nebraska’s largest classroom at the State Fair.

Today (Wednesday, Aug. 29), you’ll find corn farmers in the Beef Pit dishing up prime rib and other good food until 3:15 in the afternoon.

Finally, there are ethanol fuel promotions occurring during the Fair. One was last Saturday but and the other coming up on Monday, September 3rd. The promotions take place from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Aurora A-Stop on East Highway 30 and Bosselman’s Pump and Pantry at 3355 West Stolley Park Road.
