USSEC attended the 2017 Commodity Classic, “Farmer Up!,” from March 2-4 in San Antonio, Texas. The Commodity Classic is generally regarded as the largest farmer-led and farmer-focused convention and trade show in the U.S. The convention provides opportunities for growers, member associations, agribusinesses, and media to scope out new products and connect with each other.
