Farmers Will Cruise to Success at Commodity Classic

Soybean, corn, wheat and sorghum growers who attend the 15th Annual Commodity Classic, March 4-6, in Anaheim, Calif., will be “cruising to success.” Through valuable educational sessions, growers will learn how to improve farm efficiency and profitability from respected industry leaders.

Growers who attend the 2010 Commodity Classic are sure to benefit from the value of attending a trade show with nearly 800 booths representing the equipment, technology, products and services of today’s leading agricultural businesses and organizations.

“As a grower, attending Commodity Classic is a smart business decision,” said Commodity Classic Co-Chair Dennis Bogaards. “Producers will find many opportunities to learn about new products and technologies, as well as methods for improving productivity on their farms.”

Emcee of Commodity Classic’s General Session, Mark Mayfield, better known as “The Corporate Comedian,” will intrigue and entertain attendees with his hilarious presentation style. They will also hear what is on the minds of commodity group presidents and learn more about the facts and fiction facing today’s farmers from economist and futurist Dr. Jay Lehr. Because Lehr’s forecasts are based on in-depth knowledge of U.S. farm, energy and environmental legislation, as well as international farm support programs, he brings informed insight to identifying future risks and opportunities facing American agriculture.

Another highlight of Commodity Classic will be the “Evening of Entertainment” featuring a performance by Grammy award-winning Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. The group will bring their unique style of American folk rock music to the stage with songs like Mr. Bojangles, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, and Baby’s Got a Hold on Me.

Commodity Classic is the premier convention and trade show of the U.S. corn, soybean, sorghum and wheat industries. The event brings growers together with key decision-makers in the agricultural industry and farmer leaders from around the country for a trade show, educational sessions, cutting-edge technological demonstrations and important networking opportunities.

Commodity Classic online housing and registration opened Nov. 19. Register by Jan. 20, to receive the Early Registration rate.
