Top Producer Seminar Sets Attendance Record

January 27, 2011

The nation’s most profitable farmers are in Chicago this week to attend the 16th annual Top Producer Seminar and 3rd annual Tomorrow’s Top Producer Seminar. More than 900 attendees  representing almost 3 million acres are registered, making it the biggest attendance in Top Producer history. Seminar topics range from commodity marketing to business planning, as well as investment opportunities in the agricultural industry.

“We are excited to once again be bringing hundreds of growers together at this premiere

networking event,” says TOP PRODUCER Editor Jeanne Bernick. “Producers now more than ever

need business ideas and current market advice for their operations.”

The Top Producer Seminar started Jan. 28 and continues through Jan. 28. Along with

outstanding speakers and breakout session topics, the annual Top Producer of the Year winner

will be announced at Thursday evening's awards banquet. Finalists for this year’s Top Producer of the Year award are:

  • Jake Clark, Clark Farms, Grand Ledge, MI
  • Jim Kline, Kline Family Farms, Hartford City, IN
  • Justin Crownover, Lone Star Family Farms, Sunray, TX


In addition to Top Producer Seminar, the third annual Tomorrow’s Top Producer Program was

held Tuesday, Jan. 25. The program is designed to introduce young and beginning farmers

under the age of 35 to the business of farming. Approximately 200 growers registered for

Tomorrow’s Top Producer, doubling the number of attendees since its inaugural event in 2009.

“The enthusiasm for agriculture shown by young producers at this event is contagious,” says

Bernick. “We’re thrilled to provide a venue for education and networking for the next generation

of Top Producers.”
