Corn growers invite youth livestock exhibitors to enter "Farm-to-Virtual-Fair Contest"
Whether your local, county or state fair was canceled or held in person, you can submit pictures of you and your livestock to the National Corn Growers Association’s (NCGA) Farm to Virtual Fair contest. The contest focuses on the benefits of using corn in the feed ration. You can submit entries through Monday, November 2, 2020. “The contest is a fun way to engage with the next generation and get students to think about what a corn-powered diet can do for their livestock,” said NCGA Market Development Manager Michael Granché. “There’s a lot that goes into caring for and showing livestock, and we are celebrating the hard work that’s put into livestock shows through this contest.” The first-place winner will win $300, second place will receive $200, and third place will get $100. Winners will be announced by Monday, November 16, 2020. To enter the contest, you must follow NCGA (@corngrowers) on Instagram, tag NCGA in the post and use the hashtag #MyCornFedBarn. Participants can enter a photo or video, explaining why they use corn in their feed ration. To learn more about the contest and see official rules, visit www.ncga.com/f2f.
