Mark your calendar for December 14 and plan to attend the Columbia County Corn Growers Meeting.  We have added more information this year and have extended the meeting for an hour after lunch to be able to include a topic on Soybeans.  The Corn Growers Board of Directors, knows that almost all corn growers also grow soybeans and wheat as part of their crop rotations.
