NCGA Partners with NCBA to Sponsor Grant Funds for State Educational Events for Beef Producers

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 11:50:50 CDT

NCGA Partners with NCBA to Sponsor Grant Funds for State Educational Events for Beef Producers The National Corn Growers Association is stepping up to support the education of U.S. beef producers in states around the country. The assistance is being provided through a grant program offered to state affiliates of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association that conduct Cattlemen’s Education Series events.



The Cattlemen’s Education Series is a collaborative effort to advance grassroots education on topics that improve cattle production efficiency, profitability and sustainability. The partnership builds on other successful programs currently in NCBA’s Producer Education portfolio, such as Stockmanship & Stewardship, Cattlemen’s College and the Cattlemen’s Webinar Series. The Cattlemen’s Education Series provides grants for state affiliates to host timely and relevant education sessions for their local members.



“Corn plays an important role in the cattle industry, and NCGA is excited about this opportunity to help enhance cattle operations through the Cattlemen’s Education Series,” according to Bruce Peterson, chairman of NCGA’s Feed Fuel and Industrial Action Team. “Partnering with NCBA on this project will not only provide a benefit to cattle producers, it will also provide an opportunity to share research on the value corn and corn based feed ingredients provide within feed rations. The series demonstrates the importance of collaboration within agriculture, as it allows corn farmers to directly support and interact with their cattle industry peers.”



NCBA state affiliates will be eligible to apply for grants ranging in value from $2,000 to $4,000, depending on a variety of factors, including event participation and membership numbers. Topics eligible for grants will be developed as a partnership between NCBA and NCGA.
