Several hundred farmers journeyed to southeast Iowa to attend this year’s Farm Futures Business Summit and Ag Finance Bootcamp, an event chockfull of marketing advice, an exploration of agricultural megatrends, networking opportunities and much more. It was the best-attended summit to-date.
Headline speakers included Dr. David Kohl, professor emeritus Virginia Tech, Dr. Barry Flinchbaugh, professor of agricultural economics, Kansas State University, and many more. The sessions also allowed attendees to earn 20 Certified Crop Adviser CEU credits, underscoring the vital information presented.
Armed with a bundle of fresh business strategies, attendees went home confident that they could finally put a tough 2019 crop season in the rearview mirror and start to plan and prepare for a successful 2020.
