They say March roars in like a lion, but leaves like a lamb, and it also brings another round of farm shows and ag conventions to attend. March 3rd to the 5th will find a team from America Lending in the Big Easy— New Orleans, Louisiana— at the “Get Jazzed” Commodity Classic. It’s the nation’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show as it brings together the National Corn Growers Association, the American Soybean Association, the National Association of Wheat Growers and the National Sorghum Producers. The 2016 event will also see the addition of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers to the convention.
The Commodity Classic offers an array of educational activities, the opportunity to rub elbows with peers, exhibits on new technology and advanced farming methods and vendor booths featuring the latest products and services. Educational sessions range from in-depth discussions of current issues and topics to 5-minute-long mini sessions introducing new innovations by booth presenters. The Keynote address will be delivered by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack. Additionally, state caucuses will be held by a number of organizations, such as the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the American Soybean Association.
