Farmers walk away with new insights, new ideas, new contacts and a renewed passion for agriculture that they simply cannot get at any other agricultural event—and that’s what keeps them coming back year after year.”
Established in 1996, Commodity Classic features educational sessions, a trade show, entertainment, speakers, optional tours and the opportunity to network with thousands of farmers from across the nation.
Commodity Classic is presented annually by the American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
