Planning is underway for Wisconsin Corn/Soy Expo educational sessions and trade show scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 24, through Friday, Jan. 25, at the Kalahari Conference Center, Wisconsin Dells.
Current plans for Corn/Soy EXPO include key note addresses by John Phipps, host of America’s longest-running farm TV show U.S. Farm Report and Elwynn Taylor, agricultural meteorologist from Iowa State University. A special afternoon informational session on nitrogen management is planned with Ken Ferrie, Farm Journal field agronomist.
Both days of Wisconsin Corn/Soy Expo will start with corn and soybean marketing outlook sessions and updates on association activities. Annual meetings of Wisconsin Soybean Association, Wisconsin Corn Growers Association, Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board and the Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board also are planned.
This annual event is a great opportunity for corn and soybean growers to mix business with family time at a popular Wisconsin winter destination. Admission to the Pork Producers Taste of Elegance reception is included as part of Corn/Soy Expo and a special overnight standard room rate at the Kalahari of $99 is available for registered conference attendees.
A large industry trade show runs in conjunction with the annual Wisconsin Corn/Soy Expo and a series of educational breakout sessions are planned for Thursday afternoon. Breakout sessions geared specifically to women are in the works.
