Commodity Classic Videos Reveal Opportunities for Success

You can’t control the weather, but you can learn more about how your peers are successfully tackling the challenges they face. One way growers are learning more so they can manage risk and succeed as farmers is by annually attending Commodity Classic, the only national agricultural convention and trade show put on by farmers for farmers.

This next year, farmers will meet in Kissimmee, Fla., to learn “what’s next” directly from the agricultural leaders who are making it happen. You can hear from those who have been there what they got out of the Commodity Classic experience in two new recently released videos. The Commodity Classic “Man on the Street” video gives viewers an overall perspective on what to expect when you get there. For those who haven’t been to Commodity Classic yet, you can see what those attending the show for the first time discovered in a second video that provides the perspective of first-timers.

“Today’s political, social, and financial uncertainties, as well as environmental and technical concerns, are often requiring different solutions to business problems in farming,” said Commodity Classic co-chair Mark Schwiebert. “For this reason, understanding how others in the industry are working and succeeding can be a real boost to your operation’s bottom-line.”

Taking place Feb. 28-March 2, Commodity Classic is a one-of-a-kind, can't-miss, brain-engaging event for America's farmers. Presented annually by the National Corn Growers Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers and National Sorghum Producers, this event offers a wide range of learning and networking opportunities for growers in the areas of production, policy, marketing, management and stewardship—as well as showcasing the latest in equipment, technology and innovation.
