Ag Transportation Summit Set For July 30 And 31

Ag Transportation Summit Set For July 30 And 31

The grain industry will be looking at the growing U.S. infrastructure issues at the Ag Transportation Summit at the end of the month.  Soy Transportation Coalition Executive Director Mike Steenhoek says they don’t just want to rehash the problems at the conference, but look ahead.

Steenhoek says while infrastructure improvements take money that isn’t the only way to improve the ag transportation system.

The Ag Transportation Summit will be held near Chicago July 30 and 31 with Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis as the keynote speaker.
