Commodity Classic 35One of the stars performing here at Commodity Classic is Michael Peterson. He was onstage this morning and gave a moving talk and played some songs. In fact, he wrote a song just for corn and soybean growers (and all farmers) and debuted it here. He played a song from his new CD, which is currently available from New Holland dealers.
