The field has been set!

We are excited to announce that our 2017 corn plot is set and ready to go.  We will be planting 37 hybrids this year!  Each hybrid will be planted in both corn on corn and first year corn ground and will be replicated and randomly placed.  We will update you with our progress as we go.  Good luck to all the participating seed companies.

NOTICE OF ANNUAL MEETING

Dear Kane County Corn Growers Member,

Our fiscal year is once again coming to a close.  We would like to thank you for your continued support as a member of our organization.  We would like to invite you to our annual meeting which will be held this year at Elburn Lions Park.  You will enjoy a delicious prime rib dinner and hear about all the great things your organization has done over the past year, and what we have planned for the coming year.  Like last year, our board will be selling tickets for the event ahead of time.  You will need a ticket to attend the event, and ticket sales will end a few days prior to the event.  The cost this year will be $20 per person.  The annual meeting is to be held on Wednesday September 14, 2016.  Appetizers will be served starting at 5:30 pm with a dinner and presentation to follow at 5:45 pm.

There are 3 ways to get tickets to this event:

 

  1. Contact ANY board member to purchase your ticket.
  2. Send a check to “Kane County Corn Growers” to the address above.  Just be sure to list the names of each guest so they can be added to the list.
  3. Stop in at CHS in Elburn and purchase your ticket.

 

We hope to see you all there!

 

Sincerely,

Jeff Keifer – President

Last Wednesday, the local snowmobile club made a generous donation of $500 to the Kane County Corn Growers.  Every winter, the snowmobile club relies on local farmers to allow them to groom trails through the fields.  This year, they wanted to give something back.  We accepted the donation, and will use the money as part of our scholarship program to give back to the community.  We thank you for your donation!
