Why to attend our event for emerging farm leaders
Geared toward farmers 40 and under, the Tomorrow’s Top Producer conference July 20–21 in Nashville aims to coach and equip producers looking to become tomorrow’s leaders. You’ll not only learn from some of the smartest experts in agriculture, you’ll also network with more than 150 entrepreneurial farmers from over a dozen states.
As farm operations continue to transition responsibilities and assets to the next generation, management skills will be critical. Our event, happening this year at the beautiful Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, features a deep bench of industry experts who will help you think critically and proactively about the future of your operation. They include ag economist Mike Boehlje of Purdue University, senior vice president for agricultural finance Curt Covington of Farmer Mac, and tech-savvy dairy producer Dino Giacomazzi of Hanford, Calif. You’re sure to take away new tactics you can use right away on your farm.
Throughout the conference, you’ll have opportunities to interact with young producers with the same drive for success that you have. Enjoy our cocktail reception on opening night, grab dinner together or head out for a night on the town with your families in Music City.
We’re confident you’ll make lasting business connections during your stay. Additionally, you’ll walk away with notebooks full of information and a ton of great contacts who can help you fine-tune your A-game for the road ahead.

Meet the Man Who Left the NFL for Farming
You know what it means to put in a hard day’s work. So you’ll be inspired when NFL star-turned-farmer Jason Brown speaks as our lunch keynote at the 2017 Tomorrow’s Top Producer conference Friday, July 21.
In 2012, the former center for the St. Louis Rams decided against multi-million-dollar offers on the table from NFL teams seeking his talent. Instead, he felt called to serve people around him. In part, his decision came from the example of his older brother, a member of the U.S. Army who died in Iraq.
He and his wife, Tay, bought a 1,000-acre farm near Louisburg, N.C., and launched First Fruits Farm, which donates hundreds of thousands of pounds of crops to foodbanks, pantries and churches. To learn more, visit wisdomforlife.org/firstfruitsfarm.
