On the heels of a record profit year for many in U.S. agriculture, Top Producer will host its annual Top Producer Seminar and the Tomorrow’s Top Producer programs January 31 through Feb. 3.
More than 1000 people – including 730 of the nation’s leading business-minded farmers – are registered to attend the seminar, which is the nation’s largest and longest-tenured agriculture business seminar.
Titled "Farming in the Fast Lane – Marketing, Money and Management", this year’s seminar will focus on the business skills needed to help producers continue the profits they saw in 2011. The seminar is also known as a key event where producers can hear about local, national and international issues that will shape agriculture now and in the future.
"Given the situation around the world with growing populations and an increasing standard of living in developing countries, and couple that with scrutiny on how food, fuel and fiber are produced, and U.S. farmers face incredible challenges to their business," says Top Producer Editor Jeanne Bernick.
"This is happening at the same time we see unprecedented market opportunities and profit potential on farms. It’s going to take a sound strategy and business thinking to help farmers take full advantage of the opportunities in today’s market. The Top Producer Seminar agenda helps expose them to the issues that will be important to U.S. agriculture for decades."
