This week KyCorn traveled to Washington D.C. for a week full meetings and networking opportunities. Starting off the week were farmer-led action teams and committees having in-depth conversations in areas of public policy, ethanol, biotechnology, government regulation, trade and grower services.
Representing KyCorn this week on NCGA action teams were Quint and Leah Pottinger. Quint serves on the Research and Business Development Action Team and Leah serves on the Grower Services Action Team .
"The Grower Services Action Team meeting was very productive and I am so excited about some of the things NCGA is working on to further our cause and increase our outreach," said Leah. "NCGA surveyed a group of members on what their first, second and third topics of interest are and they produced some interesting results. Some of the topics most interesting to members were Ethanol, Production and Stewardship Practices."
Action team and committee meetings concluded Tuesday afternoon. Click here for information on the action teams and committees.
