Confirmed presenters include Dr. Ken Cassman of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Dr. Terry Klopfenstein of UN-L, Michael Kelsey of the Nebraska Cattlemen, Jon Holzfaster of the Nebraska Corn Board, and Jim Jenkins, rancher, restaurateur and chairman of the Nebraska Ethanol Board.
The forum is scheduled for Friday, October 24 at 9 a.m. at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha.
