Wheat Growers Head to 2012 Commodity Classic
Wheat growers from around the country are boarding planes and hitting the road for Nashville, Tenn.

That's the site of the 17th annual Commodity Classic, which begins officially on Thursday at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

Grower-leaders from the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) will begin business meetings held in conjunction with the larger convention on Wednesday.

NAWGs policy committees and NAWG's Board of Directors will meet in Nashville, as well as the leadership of the NAWG Foundation, which is scheduled to seat a new board as part of its ongoing revisioning process.

Wheat farmers will also join the more than 5,000 registered attendees for this years important educational sessions, including a Friday afternoon session with Larry Elworth of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), sponsored by the NAWG Foundation.

Other happenings will include social events, a general session headlined by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, and the Classic trade show, which will feature a Wheat Industry Booth sponsored by NAWG, U.S. Wheat Associates and the Wheat Foods Council.

We are excited to be heading to Nashville to meet again with our corn, soybean and sorghum friends, said NAWG Chief Executive Officer Dana Peterson.

So many issues our organization is facing today - from farm policy to communicating about the importance of a robust farm economy - are part of the Commodity Classic. We are looking forward to a successful event.

The 2012 Classic will be NAWG's sixth annual meeting with the convention.
