Among those speaking are: U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns; House Agriculture Committee Chairman Colin Peterson; Assistant to the President for Agriculture, Trade and Food Assistance Hunter Moorhead; Wal-Mart Stores Vice President Tracy Rosser; Archer Daniels Midland Senior Vice President Greg Webb; Jet Express Inc.
