Over 200 crop and livestock producers, ag industry representatives, agency personnel, and university researchers and students arrived in Kennewick, Washington to learn about dryland and irrigated oilseed agronomy, processing, economics, marketing and end use. “Golden Opportunities” was the theme this year, representing the many benefits that oilseed crops can provide, including increased wheat yield in a cereal rotation, better weed management, steady local market demand, crop diversity, and quality livestock meal and forage. WSU welcomed four keynote speakers – Gary Hergert, University of Nebraska-Scottsbluff: Bob Schrock, Kiowa, Kansas; Ron Sholar, Stillwater, Oklahoma; and Phil Thomas, Lacombe, Alberta Canada to share their perspectives of oilseed production and the oilseed industry.
