Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council looks to fill four seats in 2017


The Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council (MCR&PC) has four seats up for election in 2017. The council consists of 11 corn farmers elected from throughout the state. 

Districts voting for council members in 2017 include districts 1, 2 and 4; district 7, district 8, and district 9. To see which district your county is located in, click here. 

Interested candidates must return both a completed MCR&PC Candidate Information Form and MCR&PC Candidate Certification Form to gilbertson@mncorn.org by January 30, 2017. To obtain the forms, visit mncorn.org/forms. 

Farmers will automatically be mailed a ballot in March if they voted in last year’s election. Those who did not vote in last year’s election can request a ballot from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) here. 

Ballots will be mailed March 21, 2017 and completed ballots must be postmarked by April 6, 2017. Results should be available April 26, 2017. 

For additional information, please contact the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) at 952-233-0333. 

MCR&PC, working closely with the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, administers the efficient and effective investment of Minnesota’s corn check-off. The shared mission of both organizations is to identify and promote opportunities for corn farmers, while building better connections with the non-farming public.
