The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee made an unexpected announcement that the Colorado Corn Growers Association’s Executive Officer Team has decided to end the partnership between the two organizations.
The split is effective immediately.
A CCAC news release says they had hopes of renewing the partnership to continue moving Colorado Corn forward together, but the CCGA Executive Officer Team had “different intentions.”
The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee was established thirty years ago to manage a one-penny-per-bushel assessment collected by the first handlers of sales of corn in the state.
The committee invests the checkoff dollars on things like research, market development, as well as the outreach and education efforts on behalf of the state’s corn producers.
The administrative committee says it is “committed to continuing to manage Colorado’s corn checkoff dollars and will continue to invest in the same projects it always has to benefit corn producers across Colorado.
We, the CCAC Executive Committee, along with the entire CCAC Board of Directors and staff, will continue to serve all corn producers in the state of Colorado now and in the future.”
