Commodity Classic set for March 2-4

Anaheim, Calif., will host corn and soybean farmers from across the country at the 10th annual Commodity Classic, March 2-4.

The trade show for this premier agricultural event will display the latest in technology, equipment and products, while the convention will offer seminars that educate and enlighten growers on the topics and issues that matter to them.

Commodity Classic is the annual convention and trade show presented by the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and American Soybean Association (ASA).

More than 600 booths will fill the Commodity Classic trade show, where farmers will have the opportunity to talk with agribusiness and industry leaders representing more than 150 companies. Growers will have direct access to the latest information about a variety of products, equipment and services that can impact their bottom line.

“Farmers will find a wealth of information waiting for them at Commodity Classic,” said ASA President Bob Metz. “An outstanding trade show and top notch seminars will provide growers with information and ideas they can use to impact the profitability of their daily operations.”

“Commodity Classic is all about farmer profitability,” said NCGA President Gerald Tumbleson. “New products and services are among the many offerings of this premier ag event.”

The 2006 Commodity Classic General Session will feature a panel of experts talking about the promise of biofuels and the spirit of America's farmers. In addition, there will be special appearances by country music artist Michael Peterson spreading his message about answering Americans' call to duty. To wrap up Commodity Classic on March 4, a special “Evening of Entertainment” will feature a performance by the country music star Lorrie Morgan.

Anaheim/Orange County is California's premier playground. In addition to the Disneyland Resort, you'll also find the world-famous theme park, Knott's Berry Farm, fabulous beaches, challenging golf courses and a wide variety of outdoor recreation activities.

While Commodity Classic is celebrating its 10th anniversary, Disneyland is also celebrating its 50th year.
