Also stop by to sign up or renew your MCGA membership and get a free winter cap as a thank you for contributing to our grassroots mission.
- Exciting research on display: Leading researchers will return to MN Ag EXPO to showcase their projects bringing new levels of innovation to modern farm practices and expanding markets for corn. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the research supported by the corn check-off from the researchers leading each project.
- The 2nd Annual Minnesota Corn Reception: MCGA will again hold a reception on the first night of MN Ag EXPO celebrating the tremendous work of its 52 county corn organizations. Stop by from 4 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, for a hosted bar and light refreshments. A silent auction will again take place featuring a number of fun items and opportunities, and a limited live auction will be held this year.
- The MCGA Annual Meeting: A must-attend event for MCGA members on Thursday morning, the annual meeting is your opportunity to hear from grower leaders reflecting on the prior year and highlight priorities for the year ahead.
