NORTHERN PLAINS PRODUCER CONFERENCE POSTPONED

The Northern Plains Producer Conference (NPPC) planned for January 30th, 31st

and February 1st in Winnipeg has been moved to November 13th, 14th and 15th.



The change was made because of scheduling conflicts between the large number of

commodity groups and farm organizations invited to the event.



The NPPC gathers producer representatives from two Canadian provinces and three

American states together in one location to discuss trade issues and

opportunities in the Northern Plains region.



The Commissioners of Agriculture from Minnesota and North Dakota, the Secretary

of Agriculture from South Dakota and the Manitoba and Saskatchewan Ministers of

Agriculture will still meet in Washington, D.C. on February 23rd at the

Provinces-States Advisory Group (PSAG) meeting.



Their discussions at that forum will provide a framework for the NPPC meeting

this fall.
