Farmers across the country are getting excited for the 2023 Commodity Classic, which has just announced registration is up 28% over last year’s event in New Orleans.
The 2023 Commodity Classic will be held March 9-11 in Orlando. Attendees can register for all three days of the event; single day passes are also available.
Attendee surveys indicate that networking with other farmers is one of the top reasons producers enjoy Commodity Classic. Hallway conversations and in-person connections are an important part of the educational experience at Commodity Classic as farmers share their knowledge, passion, and insight with colleagues from across the nation.
“We saw near-record attendance the last time the event was held in Orlando in 2019, and our registrations this year are already up 28% over last year,” said Minnesota farmer and American Soybean Association Director George Goblish, who co-chairs the 2023 Commodity Classic. “Thousands of America’s best farmers from across the nation love Commodity Classic because we share a passion for agriculture, a thirst for knowledge, and we’re all interested in how we can make our farms more profitable. Learning little improvements we can make to help save money down the line really adds to the value of attending Commodity Classic.”
The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association will join fellow state soybean advocacy groups to participate in ASA’s resolution process during Commodity Classic. MSGA has seven members on ASA: Jamie Beyer, Goblish, Adam Guetter, Chris Hill, Jim Kukowski, Michael Petefish, Joel Schreurs,
“Striking up conversations with other farmers is one of the most valuable aspects of Commodity Classic,” added Kenny Hartman, an Illinois farmer, NCGA member and fellow 2023 co-chair. “Everywhere you look, you’ll see other farmers who are just as serious about their operation as you are. There’s just nothing like those in-person conversations, and there’s no better place to have them than at Commodity Classic.”
The 2023 Commodity Classic includes an impressive lineup of educational sessions, inspiring speakers, a huge trade show, entertainment, and a wide range of technology, innovation, and agronomic information. Discover more and register online at CommodityClassic.com.
