For years, the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation has held a Winter Commodity Conference to provide updates to its members on a wide range of issues.

This year's conference featured a presentation by Craig Thorn, a former specialist with the U.S. Trade Representative speaking on the Trans-Pacific Partnership; Bryce Knoor, senior grain market analyst for Farm Futures; and Danny Klinefelter, professor and economist at Texas A&M University.

Attendees also received updates on the Farm Bureau Federation's legislative policies and Mississippi State University's agricultural efforts.

Here are some photos from this year's conference.
