Hopefully, you can find time to join us. Simply put, we just want to get the folks together to talk all things marketing, production, and throw in an international flavor as our South American guests provide an update on Brazil's upcoming crop season. It should be a very interesting and fun-filled event. We would like to get a count on attendees. Thanks for your cooperation.

 

Reporting on harvest activity and visiting ag businesses, here's a glimpse of the route our group will take to the meeting. If any of you farm along this route, we would love to stop by your place. Please, let us know.

Jeff,

Book me as probably, if I can work out some transportation from the airport in Mason City, which I think is just a couple of miles away.

frankne,

 

We are looking forward to seeing you. I'm googling your path, it looks like a nice, scenic drive. We would love to have the 'originator'. We're locking in some nice special guests. It looks like the meeting line-up is shaping up nicely.

I would love to attend. Unfortunately, I will be traveling on a prior commitment. Perhaps next time.

Frank, that is very good of y ou.  The town has no cab, so you'll have to import owne from Waterloo or something.  A short trip to a guy used to Nebraska distances.

I have to ask the girls if I can get off a milking at that time of day. May just show up for the after party! We'll see.

jrsiajdranch,

 

Come if you can. I think you will find the program content interesting. To whet your appetite, we plan to reveal the results of a new marketing survey. Plus, you will get a price outlook from our marketing expert, and the latest production, export, and infrastructure developments in Brazil from Brazilians, not third-party heresay. This is information you can use in your risk management plan for 2013.

 


Hope to see you all there October 11th,

 

Mike
