Educational Sessions Lineup


The line-up of educational sessions at Commodity Classic is selected by a team of farmers just like you, so you can be assured that the content, presenters and information are relevant, current and essential to your success.


Many farmers have called the Commodity Classic education sessions “The one thing that you can’t do without.”


  • Hear from thought-provoking speakers and difference-makers in agriculture
  • Be among the first to learn about new products, technology and innovation—well before other farmers read about them in a farm magazine

Many educational sessions are concurrent. You can walk into any session without pre-registering. All you need is your name badge. If a session isn’t quite what you expected, don’t be afraid to excuse yourself and attend another.


You’ll also learn from other farmers you meet—how they deal with challenges, what they grow and how they grow it.
