The third annual Ohio Grain Farmers Symposium (OGFS) will be December 15 at the Roberts Centre and Holiday Inn in Wilmington, Ohio. Grain farmers throughout the state will have the opportunity to hear about the latest agricultural issues impacting their operations.
Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the early bird marketing report will begin at 8:30 a.m.
Topics discussed during the general session include a Washington outlook, overview of water-quality issues and consumer perceptions about farming. Attendees will also have a variety of breakout sessions to choose from with topics such as shale-gas issues in Ohio, planning for the 2012 markets and preparing for water-quality regulations.
Additionally, the annual OGFS trade show will have more than 30 companies that serve the agricultural industry on-site to speak with participants about their services.
The OGFS is held in conjunction with the annual meetings of the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA) and the Ohio Soybean Association (OSA).
