Nebraska Corn Growers Association members should also note that Wednesday, Dec. 15 is the association’s annual meeting. It is also at the Ramada Inn in Kearney and begins at 8 a.m.

Sousek encouraged members to attend, hear updates on the association and discuss and vote on resolutions. "This is grassroots in action," he said.

As for the Ag Classic, this year’s event features some great marketing advice, techniques and tips; a discussion on new tax issues, and Nebraska native Karen Ross, undersecretary for the Secretary of Agriculture, who will focus on discussing current national and agriculture issues.

David Martosko from the Center for Consumer Freedom will also be on hand. He will focus specifically on his experiences and interactions with the Humane Society of the United States and what Nebraska agriculture producers need to know to help protect their industry.

A panel discussion will follow Martosko’s presentation. Panel participants include Jack Fisher with the Ohio Farm Bureau, Chad Gregory with United Egg Producers and Craig Head with the Nebraska Farm Bureau. All three will discuss their personal experiences and involvement in defending the industry against activist groups.
