Commodity Classic scheduled for March 2-4

The 10th Anniversary Commodity Classic will provide corn and soybean farmers with an opportunity to celebrate “the magic of success,” in Anaheim, Calif., March 2-4, 2006.

Commodity Classic is an annual event that makes it possible for growers to reap the benefits of top-notch educational seminars and a highly praised trade show. The Commodity Classic experience offers lasting benefits for a farmer’s business operation and bottom line.

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

NCGA President Gerald Tumbleson said, “Commodity Classic is unmatched in its educational offerings. With workshops where growers can earn CEU credits and one of agriculture’s best trade shows, you can expect to take away a wealth of information that can help you be more profitable in your farming operation.”

ASA President Bob Metz said, “Commodity Classic is an opportunity for farmers to learn from industry experts, ask questions, see new technology and products, and network with other growers from around the country. It’s an experience that’s well worth the time and investment.”

Noted ag commentator and U.S. Farm Report host John Phipps will once again emcee this year’s General Session. Highlighting the event will be country music artist and speaker Michael Peterson, who will inspire the audience with his message of Americans’ duty to country and community. Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty will discuss the future of renewable fuels in America, and noted agriculture speaker Jay Lehr will deliver a message that will motivate the agricultural audience and encourage them to spread their message of success. Invited speakers include California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

The 2006 Commodity Classic will wrap up on Saturday, March 4, with an “Evening of Entertainment” featuring the award-winning country music star Lorrie Morgan.
