Are you going to the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, IL next week? If you are, stop by our tent to see us! Here are some of the things we are doing for the event this year:
Navigate the Farm Progress Show
IL Corn will feature a geocache contest during the Farm Progress Show which will allow you an opportunity to visit our partner companies, see the show, geocache, and enter to win an iPad! Participants of all ages are welcome; FFA and 4-H students encouraged to participate and engage in this contest.
Navigate through the muck of Regulations
We heard our membership say that the increasing number of government regulations was concerning to them. Talk with our IL Corn staff about what you can do to help minimize the impact these burdensome regulations on your farm and hear about upcoming regulations that might impact you!
Navigate your way to a five-year Farm Bill
Fighting for a Farm Bill continues to be a top priority for IL Corn. Make your voice heard by faxing your Congressman on site at the Farm Progress Show and letting him or her know how important a Farm Bill is to the future of your family farm.
Navigate to the nearest E85 station
Based on the fall prices for corn right now, margins will be tight during the 2013 crop year. Increase the demand for your product by fueling up with E85 in your flex fuel vehicle!
The American Lung Association will be on hand in the IL Corn tent with their E85 locator and some interesting information on ethanol blends. You might even consider looking up whether or not your vehicle is flex fuel before you arrive!
IL Corn has even more educational opportunities for you at the Farm Progress Show. Make sure to stop by, talk to your IL Corn staff, and pick up the free give-a-ways that we have for you. You won’t be sorry!
