Investing in Promotion & Outreach

The CCPC engages local communities in ways that showcase the long-term environmental services and important economic impact delivered by Colorado corn producers to communities across the state, and around the world. Domestic and international demand for corn and corn by-products, biofuels, and animal-based products like meat, eggs and milk is built through the work of the Council.

We’re present around the region at a wide range of events – if it relates at all to corn production in any way, we try to be there to help promote the causes of our farmers. Active attendance at events keeps us top of mind with various constituencies. Participation at out-of-state events brings Colorado perspectives and input to even larger groups. 

We tell corn's positive story

Via various platforms such as social media, PR, e-newsletters, and in-person events


CCPC teams up with a wide range of organizations across the state to support the next generation of agriculturalists and connect with the public by sharing all the amazing aspects of the grain corn industry. Education and outreach efforts also include members of the media and state legislative lunch and learn sessions, agricultural tours, and special media events like the National Western Stock Show.

Our information outreach efforts are key to encouraging a basic knowledge of agriculture, with an emphasis on the versatility of corn and its beneficial attributes. We partner with the Colorado Foundation for Agriculture to send 65,000 copies of the Colorado Reader publication to classrooms across the state, where corn is the main topic in one issue every year. We also send out the “Field Kernels” e-newsletter bi-weekly to about 3,5000 subscribers. We also broadcast important educational information about corn to 25 different radio stations statewide. 

Here are a few of the great organizations we support and activities we are involved with:
