The 19th annual National No-Tillage Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, from Jan. 12-15 is really shaping up to be a barnburner — at least that's what the recent hotel room reservation numbers are suggesting.

We're now filling rooms at the Hyatt — right next-door to the host Hilton — at the same NNTC discounted rate of $99 per night. Just make sure you ask for that rate. 

It's important to note that the hotel cutoff date is Saturday, Dec. 18, to lock in that low hotel rate. You can reserve rooms online or call the Hyatt at (888) 421-1442. (Event has passed.)

Visit to get all the details on the conference, download the 12-page program or a registration form, and learn about airfare discounts, the Spouses' Program and see what companies will be on hand as sponsors of this annual gathering of the No-Till Nation.

Finally, if you're already registered for the conference and would be interested in hosting one of 60 roundtables (and getting a chance to win FREE registration to the 2012 event), just drop me an e-mail and I'll forward you a list of the remaining Roundtables.

 We'll see you in Cincinnati!
