2019 Country Elevator Conference and Trade Show | In Review

During the 48th annual Country Elevator Conference and Trade Show (CEC), about 600 attendees gathered in Indianapolis, Ind., where they discussed the agricultural economic outlook, the current trade situation and several other issues facing the grain, feed, export and processing industry. They had the opportunity to touch on several of these topics on Dec. 9 with Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue during his keynote presentation and “fireside chat” with NGFA President and Chief Executive Officer Randy Gordon.

In addition to Perdue’s fireside chat, sessions included insights into the impact of African Swine Fever-prevention efforts, the future of consumer food trends and how they’ll affect the grain industry, workshops examining rural mental health, and a critical look at how diversity in agriculture can sustain a pool of talented leaders. The 2020 market outlook and in-depth market advisory sessions completed this informative and diverse program tailored specifically to the needs of country elevator managers, grain merchants and country elevator personnel.
