Congressman Jerry Moran (R-Hays) has an extra "ear" these days, thanks to the Kansas Corn Growers Association, which is honoring him for his years of work to advance issues important to agriculture, with its first-ever "Ear of Agriculture" award.
Leaders said the award is in appreciation for Moran's work on issues including the Renewable Fuels Reinvestment Ac and the Cuba trade bill.
Several KCGA leaders were in Washington, D.C. to participate in last week's Corn Congress and to present the award. The group included Ken McCauley, White Cloud, KS; Brian Baalman, Menlo, KS; Charles Foltz, Garnett, KS; Mary McCauley, White Cloud, KS; Kansas Corn Executive Director Jere White, Communications Specialist DeEtta Bohling and intern Kiley Stinson.
In addition to participating in Corn Congress, the group also visited members of the Kansas congressional delegation. The Kansas Corn Growers Association represents its corn grower members in areas of legislation and regulation. For more information, visit www.ksgrains.com.
