Successful Farming - - CONTENTS - By Austin An­der­son

Find the lat­est in­no­va­tions and fresh­est ideas to take your farm to the next level. From Fe­bru­ary 28 to March 2, Com­mod­ity Clas­sic re­turns in 2019. In Or­lando, Florida, thou­sands of the na­tion’s lead­ing farm­ers will gather in the pre­miere farm­ing con­ven­tion and trade show of the year.

Com­mod­ity Clas­sic is led by lead­ers in the farm­ing in­dus­try, so you can be sure each ses­sion, pre­sen­ta­tion, and ex­pe­ri­ence is care­fully crafted with farm­ers’ best in­ter­ests in mind.

Hun­dreds of smaller ex­hibits will be show­cased on the trade show floor at Com­mod­ity Clas­sic 2019, where you’re bound to find the next idea or most in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy that could change the way you farm. You’ll be among the first to see the lat­est equip­ment and con­verse with the top agribusi­ness com­pa­nies in the coun­try.

Pre­sented by Suc­cess­ful Farm­ing mag­a­zine, the Com­mod­ity Clas­sic Main Stage will fea­ture an im­pres­sive lineup of ed­u­ca­tional ses­sions led by speak­ers who pro­vide keen in­sight on a wide va­ri­ety of top­ics.

One speaker set to take the stage is Jo­lene Brown, who has been called the Dr. Phil of agri­cul­ture for her 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with farm fam­i­lies. In her in­sight­ful and fun-filled ses­sion, you’ll learn the ac­tions and be­hav­iors needed for pro­duc­tive tran­si­tion and suc­ces­sion plan­ning.

Rob Sharkey, the host of the Shark Farmer Pod­cast and a fifth-gen­er­a­tion farmer, will also take his turn on the Com­mod­ity Clas­sic Main Stage. Sharkey made a name for him­self while go­ing on a weeklong Twit­ter rant against his power com­pany. Build­ing on that pop­u­lar­ity, he launched Shark Farmer Pod­cast, where he cre­ated a plat­form for peo­ple in agri­cul­ture to tell their sto­ries. Sharkey will share which me­dia he be­lieves is in­flu­enc­ing agri­cul­ture the most.

In a re­turn to the Main Stage, Suc­cess­ful Farm­ing mag­a­zine’s ex­pert mar­ket­ing colum­nist, Al Kluis, will re­view the bullish global grain fun­da­men­tals that are de­vel­op­ing this year as well as the post-trade war en­vi­ron­ment for U.S. farm­ers in 2019. Kluis will also out­line his up­dated three-step risk-man­age­ment plan, mak­ing his pre­sen­ta­tions ones you won’t want to miss.

In Or­lando, you will be en­er­gized by be­ing among top pro­duc­ers who share your pas­sion for agri­cul­ture and your thirst for knowl­edge.
