local partnerships with the CornBelters and Illinois Beef AssociationLast night was Beef Night at the Corn Crib in Normal, IL!


Thanks to the partnership between IL Corn and the CornBelters baseball team in Normal, many of our Illinois commodities get to put their messages in front of consumers in McLean County through specially focused nights like Beef Night.


During the focus on beef, people who came to watch the game also got to meet cattle farmers, learn about cattle and cattle farming through videos on the big screen and trivia questions over the loudspeaker, and a cattle farmer (name?) even got to throw the first pitch!


Of course, hamburgers were a big part of the event.


You can keep up to date on both the Normal CornBelters and the Illinois Beef Association and the cattle farmers they represent by following them on Facebook!
