The IL Corn Growers Association met today with leaders from agricultural organizations throughout the state to discuss policy goals for 2024.  


The Illinois Agricultural Legislative Roundtable featured speakers from the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee, United States Trade Representative, and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development.


“It is encouraging to see our agricultural groups band together and work toward a common goal,” said IL Corn Growers Association President and farmer from Victoria, IL Dave Rylander. “It is critical we stay on the same page to best support the farmers in our state.”


Illinois Farm Bureau, Illinois Soybean Association, Illinois Beef Association, Growmark, Illinois Seed Trade Association, Illinois Farmers Union, Illinois Pork Producers Association, the University of Illinois, Western Illinois University, Kaskaskia Watershed Association, Illinois Milk Producers Association, and other agricultural industry leaders were present at the event.


ICGA will continue to be active in Springfield next week as Illinois’s General Assembly spring session begins January 16, 2024.
