Kentucky Small Grain Growers Association establishes research endowment fund


LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Kentucky Small Grain Growers Association has established a research endowment fund at the University of Kentucky to ensure the advancement of production research crucial to Kentucky’s grain farmers.

Individual growers and businesses may donate to the fund, and the association will match those donations up to a total of $50,000. In addition to cash, growers and businesses may make a tax deductible donation of grain.

“To date we have directed nearly $2 million toward small grain research, and we expect that sum will continue to grow in the future,” said Don Halcomb, chairman of the Kentucky Small Grain Promotion Council.

Donations should be made directly to the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture for the Kentucky Small Grains Growers Association Research Endowment.

Mail checks to University of Kentucky, College of Agriculture, Marci Hicks, Director of Development, E. S. Good Barn, 1451 University Drive, Lexington, KY 40546-0097.
