Wyffels Aims to Serve Those Who Served

Carrie Muehling

A new program from Wyffels Hybrids gives farmers an opportunity to support America’s military veterans.

The program, launched in July 2019, is called Serving Those Who Served. For the 2020-21 growing season, the initiative will benefit Homes For Our Troops. For every bag of W5086RIB sold, Wyffels Hybrids will donate $2 back to the Homes For Our Troops program. In addition, hats and t-shirts are also available, with proceeds benefiting the program.

“Wyffels Hybrids’ mission is to relentlessly work together, serving corn growers in pursuit of a more productive and profitable crop,” said Jill Loehr, Wyffels communications manager. “That’s something that Bill, Sr. started when he started the company 70-plus years ago, and that’s something that the Wyffels family still believes strongly today as the third generation takes over.”

Wyffels shared the new program at the 2019 Ag Media Summit in Minneapolis and will continue to promote it at the 2019 Farm Progress Show in Decatur. For more information or to buy merchandise, visit www.wyffels.com/stws.
