Area farmers and agri-business professionals looking for the latest marketing and farm policy info should make plans now to attend the Clinton Chamber of Commerce's 5th Annual Agri-Business Banquet.
Chip Flory, Editor of Pro Farmer Magazine, is the featured speaker at the February 25th event. He says the main goal of his appearance is to share information that will help your operation's bottom line.
Flory expects to talk markets, and more specifically risk management strategies. He says the timing of the event will also lend itself to talk about your planting plans for the 2012 growing season.
In addition, Flory plans to give those in attendance an update on the ongoing Farm Bill policy debate taking place in Washington, D.C. He feels the new Farm Bill has the potential to significantly impact your decisions on the local family farm.
The Clinton Chamber of Commerce's 5th Annual Agri-Business Banquet takes place February 25th at the Clinton Elks Lodge. Tickets for the event are now available at a number of area businesses, or by contacting the Chamber at 935-3364.
