Farmers will discover bright horizons at Commodity Classic

The Commodity Classic experience will provide corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum growers with an opportunity to "discover bright horizons," in Grapevine, Texas, Feb. 26 to 28. 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.

Growers at the 2009 Commodity Classic are sure to benefit from the value of attending a trade show with more than 920 booths representing the equipment, technology, products and services of today's leading agricultural businesses and organizations.

On Feb. 26, Commodity Classic will kick off with an early riser Production Session called "Improving Yields in the Face of High Input Prices," with speakers Brian and Darren Hefty from Ag PhD TV. With input prices at all time highs, growers may need to consider changing the way they feed their crops to stay profitable and maximize yields at the same time. The Hefty brothers will give attendees the confidence and understanding they need to get the best return on investment from their dollars and have fun while doing it.

Commodity Classic will also feature a pre-opening Learning Center Session with Jolene Brown called "Tough Questions in Tough Situations" on Feb. 26. Brown, a Certified Speaking Professional, will make growers laugh while they learn about the current hot topics for agriculture and the media's top ten pet peeves.

Commodity Classic will wrap up on Feb. 28 with an "Evening of Entertainment" featuring performances by Grammy award-winners Pam Tillis and Riders In The Sky.

"Come and learn what is new in our industry for 2009 and beyond by attending our 'What is New' sessions and visiting with representatives at our trade show," said Commodity Classic Co-Chair Ron Kindred. "I'm looking forward to meeting other growers from around the country and sharing ideas at Commodity Classic in Grapevine, Texas."

These are just a few of the many valuable experiences Commodity Classic attendees will have the chance to participate in.

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.
