JOHNSTON, Iowa -- The Iowa Corn Growers Association is pleased to announce the formation of the Grundy County Corn Growers Association (GCCGA). GCCGA will bring together area farmers and businesses to proactively manage issues that advance the Iowa corn industry. Through these efforts, GCCGA will provide corn growers a voice within the legislative arena in Iowa, Washington D.C. and around the world.
In addition, corn growers will be able to promote the corn industry in Grundy County, work together to protect existing markets for Iowa corn, and promote the expansion of new ones. The group will work to support ethanol, Iowa’s livestock industry and more.
“It is time that Grundy County have the presence of a local corn grower group,” says Terry Johnston of Parkersburg. “We are proud to establish this organization that will support our local farmer members and build greater awareness of the corn industry.
