WCGA Looking for Entries in Corn Yield Contest
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/12/2017
The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association wants to recognize top-yielding corn production from farmers in six districts of the state once again this year by holding its third annual Corn Yield Contest. Program coordinators say entry in the competition is free, but
farmers must be members of WCGA and can only submit one entry per member.
First, second and third-place cash prizes will be awarded for each of the following organizations: Columbia County Corn Growers; Juneau/Adams/Marquette Corn Growers; Rock Corn Growers; and the Dodge/Fond du Lac Corn Growers group. Wisconsin
corn growers in the northern and southern parts of the state will compete against each other in a fifth and sixth category. First-place winners in each category will receive $500, second place is $250 and $100 goes to the third place winner.
At harvest, corn yields must be verified for the contest by either a county agent or a professional agricultural consultant and can be confirmed by using a weigh wagon or truck scale. A harvest form must be submitted to be considered for a prize and will be sent
to everyone requesting an entry form. A harvest report form must be received by December 8.
A simple one-page entry form is available from the Wisconsin Corn Program Office by calling 262-372-3289.
