Registration Success!

Dear 2024 YEN Meeting Participant:

Thank you for registering for the US meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 23, 2024. Our meeting will begin at 11:00 a.m. in the Three Fires room at the Soaring Eagle Casino located at 6800 East Soaring Eagle Blvd., Mt Pleasant, MI 48858.

When you arrive on-site at the meeting, you will need to check-in which begins at 10:30 a.m. to enter the meeting. The Great Lakes YEN meetings are kept very closed and only participating growers, their agronomists and a couple of other key participants may be allowed to attend.

Our goal is to take a deep dive into the data discovered through our past two years during this meeting. There will be some presentations, but also a lot of time for conversations and idea sharing. We will begin the meeting at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be brought in at 12:30 p.m. We are planning to wrap up about 5:30 p.m. depending upon the discussion.

You may want to stay over for the Great Lakes Crop Summit that begins that same evening with an opening reception at 7:30 p.m. Follow the link here for the agenda for that program which should be updated very soon:

If you are wanting to attend the Great Lakes Crop Summit (GLCS) you will need to register for the conference through their website which is: If you would like a room for Tuesday, January 23 whether or not you are attending the crop summit, you make those reservations separately by calling Soaring Eagle at 877-232-4532 and using the group code GLCS012324. Unfortunately, we are unable to cover the costs of the GLCS or the overnight rooms, so those are on your own.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact either Jody Pollok-Newsom at or via cell at 517-490-0280 or Dennis Pennington via email at or via cell at 269-832-0497.

Thank you for your dedication to YEN and wheat production! We look forward to outstanding discussion during our wrap up meeting! See you January 23!

Dennis & Jody
