Hello from Malcom, Iowa, where I’m spending the day with the good folks from Wyffels Hybrids, who are putting on Corn Strategies 2010. This gathering is expected to draw about 600 corn farmers from throughout the area, especially Eastern Iowa, where they will get to see and hear more about this independent company… a company where you can still talk to the owners and plan how to best approach the next planting season. While it might seem early to think about next year’s season, this is the time when many farmers are planning their strategy.
In the video below, you’ll get to hear from Matt Barnard, the coordinator for Wyffels Corn Strategies, talk a little bit about what it takes to pull off an event like this.
The day’s events are just getting underway, so if you’d like to come out, just turn north of I-80 at the U.S. Highway 63 exit, go through the small town of Malcom and turn right (east) at 400th Street, just north of town. You can’t miss the big white tent! See you here!
