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.
In addition to hosting a booth, USSEC also hosted a reception prior to the ASA banquet on Friday evening. About 85 people attended the U.S. Soy Family Gathering. Attendees included U.S. Soy grower leaders along with leadership from Qualified State Soybean Boards (QSSBs), ASA, and USB.
“The reception provided a good opportunity for the U.S. Soy family to meet and network before the ASA banquet,” said USSEC Stakeholder Relations Manager Will McNair.
