A Corn Fed Kentucky State Fair

For the 16th year, KyCorn served up a sweet time under the Great Kentucky Cookout Tent with the other commodity groups at the Kentucky State Fair. The association was extremely thankful for the help that students from the Martha Layne Collins High School FFA Chapter and UK's 1/4-scale tractor pull team provided during the 11-day run. KyCorn also engaged fair goers in their #CornFedKY social media promotion to encourage "corny" posts and tweets.

KyCorn also supported Kentucky FFA and 4-H by contributing to the purchase of the Reserve Champion Hog in the Sale of Champions. The hog was exhibited by Gary Nelson Barger, of Meade County FFA, and sold for $11,000. Others contributing to the sale price were Ed and Pat Jenkins, Farm Credit Mid-America, Judah Real Estate Group, and Friends of the Sale. Funds are divided among the winning exhibitor (60%), other hog class winners (30%), and the Kentucky 4-H and FFA programs (10%).
