The Illinois Corn Growers Association hosted Representative Darin Lahood on Monday February 24. Several IL Corn leaders, including your President Bill Leigh and Committee Chair Marty Marr pictured here met with him.

Together, these corn farmers and Congressman Lahood discussed issues impacting corn farmers including USDA reporting, market facilitation program details, trade opportunities after the passage of USMCA and health care.

ICGA members indicate that their primary reason for joining the association is for representation in Washington DC and Springfield IL. Your farmer leaders take that task seriously. IL Corn makes a point to meet with elected officials representing Illinois regularly.

ICGA leaders will travel to Washington DC the second week of March, 2020. If you have concerns you’d like us to share with your representatives, please email us at
