Overcoming Challenges.
Creating Opportunities.

Farming can be a challenge. With agriculture in the midst of what feels like a prolonged slump, are you finding yourself stuck between falling commodity prices and stubbornly high input costs? What opportunities are out there that can earn you a premium price for your crops and livestock while reducing your cost of production?  


Iowa Farm Bureau’s 2017 Economic Summit, “Overcoming Challenges. Creating Opportunities,” will help you address these issues and more. This one day conference comes at a critical time for farmers and is packed with leading national experts – like David Oppedahl with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago; John Newton, economist with the American Farm Bureau Federation; Jim Knuth, senior vice president with Farm Credit Services of America; and Zippy DuVall, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation – just to name a few.

Get an in-depth look at overall farm economic prospects and discuss important issues critical to the health of your farm like, opportunities in livestock production, landlord-tenant relationships, soil health and cover crops, farm bill outline, outlook for exports, innovative risk management tools and trends in new and used farm machinery markets.

Reduce your risk.

Join us on July 20 at the Scheman Center in Ames, Iowa. Pre-registration is $30 for Iowa Farm Bureau members and $75 for non-members.
