ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Attendees at the 2017 Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas, can make their experience even more memorable by signing up for one or more of the fascinating tours available during the event.

Optional tours are scheduled Wednesday, March 1 through Saturday, March 4. Tours available during those four days include:
• A tour of the 2.2 million square-foot Toyota Tundra manufacturing plant
• A visit to the world-renowned San Antonio zoo
• Exploring the scenic backroads of Texas Hill County including the home of President Lyndon Johnson

“These optional tours are a great way for families to make the most of their time in San Antonio and to have one-of-a-kind experiences they can’t have anywhere else,” said Ed Erickson, Jr., a North Dakota farmer and co-chair of the 2017 Commodity Classic. “While Commodity Classic is focused on making all of us even better farmers, it’s also about having a little fun and taking some time with family. This year’s line-up of optional tours truly has something for everyone.”
