With soybean, corn, wheat and sorghum producers together for one event, Commodity Classic has become a major gathering point for agriculture. Attendance approached 8,000, which is an all-time record. The Red River Farm Network had two journalists in Phoenix for Commodity Classic, covering the numerous meetings and the massive trade show. This past week, the RRFN team was also in Winnipeg for Wild Oats Grainworld and Aberdeen for the Aberdeen Ag Expo. This week, RRFN will travel to San Antonio for the National Pork Industry Forum. RRFN will also participate in two regional events this week. Wednesday's Ag Trends Conference in Mahnomen features Purdue economist Michael Boehlje. On Thursday, the CHS Ag Services Ag Industry Day will include a taping of US Farm Report. Market analysts Tommy Grisafi, Andy Shissler and DuWayne Bosse will be part of that US Farm Report event. Remember, RRFN is Reporting Agriculture's Business.
Vilsack Urges Farmers to Support TPA and TPP
Sat, 28 Feb 2015

Speaking at Commodity Classic, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack urged farmers to show the same passion for Trade Promotion Authority that they did for the 2014 farm bill. “I’m asking you to help us convince this country that it’s in our economic and national security interests to get these trade agreements through," pleaded Vilsack, "Why do I ask? I spoke with a Senator the other day; he said I’ll give you two numbers, 1,200 and two. The 1,200 represents the number of calls my office has received this week opposed to Trade Promotion Authority and TPP. The number two is the number of calls I’ve received in support.” RRFN's Commodity Classic coverage is sponsored by the North Dakota Soybean Council.
