Commodity Classic countdown begins

At Commodity Classic 2002 Feb. 21-23 in Nashville, Tenn., corn and soybean growers will have a unique opportunity to "Stay in Tune With the Future" and network with top producers and industry leaders from throughout the United States.

They will hear the latest information about issues and concerns that affect their farming operation and agriculture in general. Commodity Classic is the Seventh Annual Combined Convention and Trade Show of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and American Soybean Association (ASA).

"Commodity Classic is a great opportunity to network with other producers," said NCGA President Tim Hume, a farmer from Walsh, Colo. "Growers will benefit from one-on-one conversations, group discussions, and interactions with producers and industry representatives."

The Commodity Classic Convention and Trade Show offers producers a valuable opportunity that occurs only once a year. It's an opportunity that conveniently gives them access to a large number of agriculture businesses and organizations and their leaders, as well as educational and learning seminars.

"Many top agribusiness leaders and industry experts attend Commodity Classic," said ASA President Bart Ruth, a farmer from Rising City, Neb.

"They are there to share information with growers and help them increase the efficiency and profitability of their farm operation."
