Chip Flory Confirmed to Speak at 2015 U.S. Soy Global Trade Exchange


Chip Flory is a familiar face in agriculture through his weekly Profit Briefing segment on AgDay TV.  He has also appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box and U.S. Farm Report as both a guest analyst and a panel moderator.  Respected for his no-nonsense delivery, Chip is a frequent seminar speaker and crowd favorite
Chip began his career in Chicago reporting from the floors of the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange as Bureau Chief for FWN.  Chip served as the Editor of Pro Farmer Newsletter from 1997 to 2013 and has been the publisher since November 1999.  He was named Editorial Director in 2014 and is responsible for the news, information and perspective delivered by Pro Farmer and still plays an active role in grain and livestock marketing advice to the 12,000-plus Pro Farmer Members
Chip is also the host of Farm Journal Media’s “Market Rally” radio program.  Airing Monday-Friday after the markets close, the one-hour talk show focuses on ag commodity markets and risk-management strategies.
Growing up on a farm in the east-central Iowa community of Oxford Junction, Chip was very active in 4-H, an interest that he passed on to his kids Emily and Thomas.  Chip and his wife Sue currently live in Denver (not the mile-high... the mile-wide Denver just north of Waterloo, Iowa).
Chip will provide conference attendees with a summary of the findings of the 2015 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour, the first “boots on the ground,” detailed analysis on the likely outcome for 2015’s U.S. corn and soybean harvest.
