Biofuel focus at NGFA's annual convention

Major sessions featuring new information on the likely impacts of biofuels expansion on US agriculture and the performance of US futures markets highlight the 111th annual convention program of the National Grain and Feed Association, scheduled for March 18-20 in San Francisco, California, USA.

During the three-day event, leaders of the nation's grain, feed and processing industry also will be focusing on rail and waterway transportation issues, challenges facing animal agriculture production, changes to the licensing agreement governing federally licensed grain warehouses, and important safety and health issues facing grain-handling and feed manufacturing operations.

Working sessions
The NGFA's convention also will feature working sessions of most of the association's 17 committees addressing the most pressing issues facing grain elevators, commercial feed mills, integrated livestock and poultry operations, and grain processors and millers. Virtually all NGFA committee meetings are open to all convention registrants.

The complete convention program and registration information is available on the NGFA's web site.
