DEKALB honored last year's winners at the 2016 Commodity Classic in New Orleans, Louisiana, during the DEKALB Awards Night. Winners from the 2015 yield contests were eligible to win up to $10,000, a trip for two to the 2016 Commodity Classic in New Orleans, Louisiana, and an invitation to the DEKALB big event featuring award-winning artist, Easton Corbin.
