The 2020 Commodity Classic set a record for the number of farmers attending the event.
The total number of farmers who registered for the event was 4,678, the highest number in the show’s 24-year history.
That was 83 more farmers than the previous record of 4,595 set in New Orleans during the 2016 Classic.
The 9,350 total registrations were second only to the 2016 event in New Orleans.
The 2020 Commodity Classic, set in San Antonio, Texas, was jam-packed with dozens of educational sessions, a huge trade show that featured almost 400 exhibitors, a keynote address by Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue, as well as policy meetings of the sponsoring commodity organizations.
The Commodity Classic will celebrate its silver anniversary as it makes a return to San Antonio, March 4-6, 2021.
The Classic was first established in 1996 and is America’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused educational and agricultural experience.
The Commodity Classic is presented every year by the American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers, and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
