The 15th Annual Commodity Classic, set for March 4-6 in Anaheim, California will feature 4,500 farmers, family members and industry representatives and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, who is the keynote speaker for March 5. National Corn Growers Association President Darrin Ihnen says he has no doubt growers will value the Secretary's attendance and appreciate hearing his positions on future policies affecting the industry.
