NCGA Staff and Growers Share Corn's Sustainability Story at Cattlemen's Convention

Wed, 18 Aug 2021 11:44:38 CDT

NCGA Staff and Growers Share Corn's Sustainability Story at Cattlemen's Convention The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) participated in the recent National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) 2021 Cattlemen’s Convention and NCBA Trade Show, engaging with leaders of the organization to share corn's sustainability story. NCGA President John Linder and NCGA CEO Jon Doggett were invited to present during NCBA’s executive committee meeting to share NCGA’s recently unveiled sustainability goals and report.

Members of the Market Development Action Team (MDAT) had additional meetings throughout the convention with NCBA and Cattlemen Beef Board (CBB) leadership.

“It is very important to engage with our animal ag partners, especially cattle producers as beef cattle are one of our largest customers,” said Bob Hemesath, Iowa farmer and MDAT Chair. “It was great to share our work and talk about opportunities to partner together in the future. We have built a great relationship with NCBA, and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with cattle producers.”

NCGA sponsored the live show and participated in interviews during Adam’s on Ag, which broadcast live from the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) booth.

Additionally, NCGA sponsored a learning lounge session that focused on the partnerships between cattle and corn. The session, Corn & Cattle: Partners in Sustainability, Marketability and Profitability, had panelists from MDAT as well as USMEF and the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (USRSB).
