Join Us for the 25th Annual Kentucky Commodity Conference

2019 - 25th.JPG

There is an amazing lineup of speakers and sessions planned for the 2019 Kentucky Commodity Conference, which marks the 25th year the Kentucky Corn Growers, Kentucky Small Grain Growers and Kentucky Soybean Associations have been collaborating to bring the latest marketing and production information to the commonwealth’s growers.

An early riser session with Purdue corn expert Bob Nielsen begins the January 17 conference in Bowling Green at 7 a.m. CT. Farmers will also have the opportunity to meet with many vendors during the trade show and then attend the economic session to hear from Kevin Van Trump.

Following lunch and a keynote address by Dr. David Kohl of AgriVisions, LLC, growers and agribusiness professionals will hear a research review session and the many accomplishments of the three grower associations. Members will also be electing leadership for 2019 at the association annual meetings.

The evening will be concluded with a grower appreciation reception and awards banquet, where leaders and outstanding producers will be recognized for their hard work.

This is no cost to attend this conference, but participants must register by January 6th to attend and enjoy the wonderful meals planned.
