Registration is now open for the 2011 Trends In Agriculture, November 8-9 in Kansas City. The theme for this year’s Trends In Agriculture is Progress Through Productivity.

This just in…Jeff Simmons, President of Elanco, will be speaking at the closing session that is shared with NAFB! Below is an overview of this session:
