Commodity Classic offers farmers across the country a chance to get together, learn about new technologies and explore innovative ways to improve their own farming operations. While this opportunity is open to all farmers, a special set had the chance to share their unique experiences as 12 of the National Corn Growers Association’s past presidents were on hand to help the association celebrate membership, conservation and excellence in production at the annual banquet.
During an action-packed evening, which included a speech on the importance of grassroots activism by NCGA CEO Chris Novak and a laugh-packed performance by the Cowboy Hypnotist Don Warren, the past presidents stepped outside for a special moment and commemoration of the event.
As always, Commodity Classic brought together the passion and wisdom of America’s farmers. See you next year in Anaheim! To find out more, please visit www.commodityclassic.com.
