Registration is underway in Nashville at the Opryland Convention Center for the 2008 Commodity Classic. Some 4000 corn, soybean and wheat growers, industry representatives and partners are expected to attend the event, which just keeps getting bigger.
Today is meeting day for the different commodity groups and time for everyone to get oriented to this small city that is the Opryland. No need to work out here – just the walk from one end to another is exercise enough!
The farm bill – or lack thereof – is the main topic of discussion in the hallways here. And we can expect to hear more about that when Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer speaks on Friday during the general session.
