LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Feb. 26, 2019) – Amid market uncertainties and forecasts for lower yields in corn and soybeans, Farm Credit Mid-America again will be participating in the Commodity Classic, one of the country's top agricultural conventions and trade shows. The 2019 Classic is being held Feb. 28-March 2, in Orlando.
"Commodity Classic is a great opportunity to meet with farmers that are doing well and those who have concerns about their operations," said Bill Johnson, president and chief executive officer of Farm Credit Mid-America. "Recent reports from the USDA reveal a bearish outlook for the year ahead, but we believe there are ways to navigate the markets.
"We look forward to speaking with farmers, hearing the good and the worrisome, their concerns, questions and to have the chance to talk about how they might improve production or operations or protect investments," he said.
Commodity Classic includes a trade show featuring more than 400 exhibitors representing everything from animal science to irrigators to seeds to equipment such as tractors, combines and balers. Farm Credit Mid-America is represented there, too, in Booth 2561.
There also are educational sessions covering topics such as soil health, grain marketing, farm policy, farm succession planning and rural economic development, an area of specialized interest for Farm Credit Mid-America.
As demonstration, Farm Credit on Friday, March 2, will present, "What does it mean to rebuild rural America?" in a learning session. There, Brian Cavey, senior vice president of Governmental Affairs for CoBank, and Gary Matteson, vice president for Young, Beginning and Small Farmer Programs & Outreach for the Farm Credit Council will share info leading to a deeper understanding of the vital changes coming to farmers' operations and communities.
Additionally, Farm Credit Mid-America will share updates about its patronage program – the cooperative is returning $146 million this year to patronage-eligible customers, the most the association has ever returned, about new and deeper ties with Purdue University, about the importance of talking with your lender leading up and into the planting season and about crop insurance.
