With corn harvest weeks away, the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association (WCGA) wants to recognize top-yielding corn production from farmers in four districts of the state in the association’s Corn Yield Contest.
Entry in the state corn yield contest is free, but farmers must be members of WCGA, and only one entry per member will be accepted. A simple one-page entry form is available from the Wisconsin Corn Program Office by contacting 262-495-2232, wicorn@centurytel.net.  Link to news release: http://wicorn.ncgapremium.com/images/E0205218/CornYieldContestpromotion.pdf

It's All Happening At Milwaukee Zoo October 12

Free admission, free tee shirts support E85 Ethanol fuel as the Clean Air Choice of the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest!

Wisconsin corn growers invite friends and families to join the Green E85 Lung Force Team for a free day at the Milwaukee zoo and free green team shirts at the American Lung Association’s annual fund-raising walk Sunday, October 12.

The walk is a major fund-raising event that helps the ALA in Wisconsin, the oldest nationwide voluntary health agency in the United States, fight lung disease through education, community service, public policy and research. As part of the year’s promotional efforts supported by Wisconsin’s corn checkoff, the Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board provides free, commemorative T-shirts shirts to everyone who walks.

Online registration to walk and/or to make secure, tax-deductible donations to the American Lung Association is available at
http://www.lungforce.org/walk. Walkers also can register on site starting at 8 a.m., October 12 and the walk starts at 9 a.m. at the Milwaukee County Zoo.

NCGA's Know Before You Grow website gives growers updated info on new seed varieties currently unapproved in some export markets and is an important resource for all corn growers as they head into planting season. Read what Wisconsin Corn Grower Jim Zimmerman has to say about this resource at http://wicornpro.org/ and listen to his interview by clicking HERE.

Syngenta has a new educational video entitled, “Ethanol: Fueling Rural America’s Future – One Community at a Time,” along with a series of other topical videos that help to tell ethanol’s story. The videos’ primary purpose is to inform and educate the general public about the positive impact ethanol is having on cleaning our air, improving our economy and fulfilling our nation’s quest to become energy independent.  View the videos by clicking here.

No Meaningful Difference between E10 and E15 ethanol blends, says a report from the National Renewable Energy Lab, which also found no evidence to support oil industry claims of mechanical problems with E15 ethanol blends. Read more online here: NREL Report

Ethanol Promotes Consumer Choice  explains an opinion column by Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, in the Oct. 10 Wall Street Journal. It is the ethanol industry, which makes a cheaper, cleaner, higher octane product, that is ready, willing and able to face free market competition from petroleum.

Consumers Consider Ethanol Green Energy. A survey released during BIO World Congress shows US consumers name ethanol 39% of the time when asked to name a product they consider green.  The study also found that four in 10 American consumers have heard the term 'biobased' to describe various products including fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel as well as cleaning products and personal care products.
