Commodity Classic a Farmer Event Worth Attending



Registration opens today (Wednesday 11/14/18) for an agriculture event where every experience, every educational session, and every speaker is selected by farmers and for farmers. Commodity Classic, presented by the nation’s corn, soybean, sorghum, and wheat growers, and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, has grown every year since 1996.

“If you need to connect with people and want to learn the newest and the greatest things that are going on, Commodity Classic is the place to be,” says American Soybean Association President John Heisdorffer from Iowa.

National Corn Growers Association First Vice President Kevin Ross from Iowa says Classic is one of the premiere ag events you will ever attend.

“You’ll learn a lot and get a chance to meet industry folks,” he told HAT. “You’ll certainly get a chance to see a great trade show that’s under roof in a cold time of year back home for a lot of guys. So, it’s a great time to get there and work on some business as well as do a lot of networking when you go. I had the pleasure of co-chairing Commodity Classic a couple of years ago. A lot of work goes into that show to make it good for the farmers, and I can promise you it will be a good one again.”

Heisdorffer with ASA says there is always a valuable educational session being held, and that trade show?

“It’s a big trade show, huge trade show! It’s as big a trade show as any you can have. You’ve got a little bit of everything to choose from (at classic) and there’s always an educational program that you can go to.”

Wesley Spurlock, a Texas corn farmer and co-chair of the 2019 Commodity Classic adds, “You’ll be among the best farmers, the best education, the best technology and innovation, and the best agribusinesses, all under one roof.”
