It's that time of year again! The 2016 Kentucky State Fair began Thursday and is underway. When attending the state fair over the next week, there are many places you can visit KyCorn.
KyCorn will be sponsoring the Sale of Champions, which allows exhibitors to sell their champion livestock to hometown and national supporters. The Sale of Champions encourages youth to be competitive with their livestock, as well as leads to improved genetics and more valuable animals in Kentucky.
KyCorn will also have a presence in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture booth in the West Hall. We will have a hot rod 1965 Cobra that runs on E85 available for viewing. We encourage all attending to stop by and learn about ethanol.
KyCorn sponsors the Mobile Science Unit in addition to KY Ag & Environment in the Classroom. The Mobile Science Units are trailers with 10 interactive workstations for a classroom of students to conduct activities and investigations related to agriculture and the environment. You can tour a mobile science center in South Wing B.
KyCorn will also have materials located at the Ky Ag and Environment in the Classroom display, KDA's grain inspection and Dairy booths. Don't forget to stop by The Great American Cookout Tent next to Broadbent Arena where KyCorn is partnered with Gallrein Farms to offer roasted sweet corn.
"KyCorn is excited to be involved in so many areas of the State Fair this year," said Laura Knoth, KyCorn Executive Director. "The State Fair is a great time to educate the public and promote corn and all corn products."
