Above, Brett Begemann, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for Monsanto, was the opening speaker during the second annual Santa Fe Agri-Leaders Global Ag Syposium on Jan. 26. Begemann, who grew up on a farm in Lafayette County, spoke about his work in Southeast Asia and possibilities for U.S. farm exports

Warm weather and and a rare chance to get in the field kept some of the participants away, but about 60 people were able to learn about a variety of subjects.

"I thought it went pretty well overall," said Neal Bredehoeft, one of the organizers. "The people I talked to seemed to like the program."
