USGC Launches New Facebook Page for 2015 Corn Crop

Facebook
The Council this week launched a new Facebook page called: Growing the 2015 U.S. Corn Crop.

The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) this week launched a new Facebook page - Growing the 2015 U.S. Corn Crop - as a direct channel for communication between farmers and overseas customers about the condition and quality of the 2015 U.S. corn crop.

“This page helps illustrate this year’s theme of Global Awareness, Global Connections,” said USGC Chairman Ron Gray.

“We are more globally connected than ever, and we are constantly looking for ways to use modern communications tools to build the connections between our farmers and their customers around the world. We are excited about this opportunity to increase awareness of how the 2015 U.S. corn crop is growing.”

All U.S. corn farmers and international customers are invited to like and post on the page. The Council encourages U.S. corn producers to post regular updates on the progress of their corn crop with photos or videos and commentary. The Council will also be providing some content for the page, including videos tracking the season as experienced by three farmers in Indiana, Iowa and Texas.

All farmers interested in contributing to the page are welcome to complete a webinar-based social media training that will be offered by the Council on April 23 at 11 a.m. Easterm and again on May 12 at 2 p.m. Eastern. Interested parties should email grains@grains.org for more information.
