Iowa Corn's social channels will also be

Iowa Corn Promotion Board
The ICPB is composed of 12 corn grower members, one from each of the nine cropreporting districts and three officers. The board members are elected by their peers and direct funds are collected through the Iowa corn checkoff program. The checkoff was
established by grower referendum in 1977 and has been a model for other programs in 18 states. The checkoff program collects 1 cent per bushel and is refundable. The ICPB and the growers it represents are actively working to create an economic climate
in which the Iowa corn industry will flourish through research, market development and education.
Iowa Corn Growers Association
The ICGA brings growers together to proactively manage issues that advance the Iowa corn industry. The ICGA's lobbying and legislative efforts are financed through membership dollars. They target everyday issues that directly affect the corn growers livelihood. The association and its elected board of directors from each crop-reporting district, represent nearly 7,500 members and work to build relationships with business and industry. Through all these efforts, the ICGA is advancing the Iowa corn industry by providing corn growers with a voice in Iowa, Washington, D.C., and around the world.
We are the farmers and ranchers of America. U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) consists of more than 80 farmer - and rancher-led organizations and agricultural partners representing virtually all aspects of agriculture, working to engage in dialogue with consumers who have questions about how today's food is grown and raised. USFRA is committed to continuous improvement and supporting U.S. farmers and ranchers efforts to increase confidence and trust in today's agriculture.
