Register for Wisconsin Corn Yield Contest

Winners in four divisions receive cash prizes

The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association is seeking applicants for the association's Corn Yield Contest. WCGA recognizes top-yielding corn production from farmers in four districts of the state.

First, second and third-place cash prizes will be awarded for WCGA member/growers in the following organizations: Columbia County Corn Growers; Juneau/Adams/Marquette Corn Growers; and the Dodge/Fond du Lac Corn Growers group. Wisconsin corn growers in all other parts of the state will compete against each other in a fourth statewide category. First-place winners in each of four categories receive $500, second place is $250 and third place, $100.

Register for Wisconsin 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.

At harvest, corn yields must be verified for the contest by either a county agent or a professional agricultural consultant and can be confirmed by using a weigh wagon or truck scale. A harvest form must be submitted to be considered for a prize and will be sent to everyone requesting an entry form. A harvest report form must be received by Dec. 1. 

WCGA is a membership organization that represents the interest of state corn growers in the growth and management of corn grown for on-farm feeding and commercial sale.
