We are a community of agribusiness professionals who believe education is paramount to keep our state’s grain handlers safe and protect our industry from harmful legislation.

The History of KGFA

Driving through the state of Kansas you can’t look over the water-colored horizon in any direction without seeing tall stacks of concrete in the distance. It’s symbolic the largest structure in nearly every county is also its most important. More than 100 years ago, the breadbasket of the country had to have a place to store all of its surpluses before the grain was dispersed to feed the world. The elevator brought the railroad, which brought relevance, infrastructure and hope that farming in the Midwest could pay off. Grain elevators have evolved a lot since our founders created Kansas Grain and Feed Association in 1896, but one thing hasn’t changed – the importance of the elevator to our communities. That’s why our founders set out to protect these tools from legislation that could not only shut down the elevator, but inadvertently, a whole town. We’re proud to carry on a nearly 125-year tradition of defending our state’s most important assets, which in turn, protect you.

The Purpose

We’re producing a community of individuals who are proud to stand up and educate lawmakers and the general public on the importance of the grain and feed industry to the state of Kansas – and the world.
