2012 AG CLASSIC CONVENTION AND NGF TRADE SHOW JANUARY 10 – 11, SAVE THE DATE

FUMIGATION WORKSHOP INCLUDED

Mark down the dates for the 2012 Nebraska Ag Classic (NAC) and 115th  Nebraska Grain and Feed Association (NGF) Trade Show and Annual Meeting!  The dates are January 10 - 11, 2012, at the Kearney, Nebraska, Holiday Inn and Convention Center.  If you want to be an exhibitor at the trade show, there is still booth space available.  Please watch for future NGF tradeshow sponsorship opportunities.  The NAC and NGF registration and convention form is attached.  The January 10th NGF Annual Meeting speakers and agenda will be announced soon, so look for further details!

While further details are being worked out, the NGF Board of Directors will tentatively meet at approximately 9:30 AM on January 10.  The NGF annual tradeshow will run from 10:00 AM and throughout the day, ending with the NAC reception on the tradeshow floor.  The NGF 115th  annual meeting will tentatively begin at 2:00 PM on the tradeshow floor.  We would encourage you or your employees to register and take advantage of the program, and the lineup of NAC and NGF speakers.

LEMAR INDUSTRIES will present a major half hour presentation at 12:00 PM on January 10, on the NGF tradeshow floor on their high-capacity, heavy-duty drive-over conveyor, and other grain moving equipment.  The presentation is mostly geared to large grain operations, so we need as many NGF member company employees as possible to attend.  NGF members attending the preventive maintenance workshop are encouraged to attend the noon LEMAR INDUSTRIES tradeshow presentation for just the price of lunch on the tradeshow floor.  However, there will be many other NGF associate members at the tradeshow, so please show your support and make a point of visiting all the exhibitors.  Please look for future details on the elevator preventive maintenance workshop.

We are also working out the final agenda for the annual NGF FUMIGATION WORKSHOP at the Nebraska Ag classic on January 10th or January 11th.   Final scheduling details will be made available in the next two weeks.  Don’t miss this opportunity to refresh or renew your commercial fumigation licensing requirements.

Included on the Ag Classic agenda will be a timely and informative presentation from members of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) and Common Ground.  Forrest Roberts, CEO of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association will represent USFRA and a member of Common Ground will be present to talk about what work is being done to build consumer trust in today’s agriculture.  Tuesday evening attendees will be entertained with unique “Old West” stories from Joe Jeffrey.  Jeffrey will be presenting his fascinating and rib-tickling outlook on ordinary objects such as fence posts, outhouses and basic necessities like food.

Wednesday morning will bring an update on national agriculture policy with Ross Korves, Economic Policy Analyst with ProExporter Network.  Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session with Korves on the latest issues affecting agriculture.  Mike Krueger, moneyfarm.com, will follow Korves with current updates and trends in marketing.

Register for the entire program by January 2, 2012 and save $25.00!   Pre-Registration Deadline: January 2, 2012.  Please download the Nebraska Ag Classic Registration Form here
