Corn Maze event raises more than $2,400 for local FFA chapters ...

The Waukon Feed Ranch Corn Maze event held in early September helped raise more than $2,400 for the future of local farming, and those funds were recently distributed to local high school FFA chapters at a check presentation event held Friday, October 11 at the Waukon Feed Ranch Agronomy Center near Waukon. Waukon Feed Ranch created a corn maze for the public to try and navigate at its agronomy center location west of Waukon along Old Highway 9, taking a freewill donation to help raise funds for the local FFA chapters of Waukon High School and Kee High School. Along with the corn maze proceeds, the Allamakee County Cattlemen and Allamakee County Pork Producers hosted a grilling event, WW Homestead Dairy sold cheese curds and the Allamakee County Dairy Promotion Board had its dairy wagon on site, with additional proceeds from those offerings also being added to the donated funding.

Pictured above at that October 11 check presentation are, left to right, Nick Tilleraas of the Allamakee County Cattlemen, Brad Herman of Waukon Feed Ranch, Waukon FFA Advisor Jessica O’Connor, Kaylee Gibbs and Faith Palmer of the Waukon High School FFA chapter, Charles Stendel, Peter Boland and Cheyanne Troendle of the Kee High School FFA chapter, Kee High School FFA Advisor Ray Rankin, and Kim Winters and Mike Horns of Waukon Feed Ranch.
