Commodity Classic "Jazzed" to Welcome U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack

Fri, 19 Feb 2016 11:33:03 CST

Commodity Classic U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack will make his seventh visit to Commodity Classic, the nation’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show. Secretary Vilsack will deliver a keynote address to several thousand farmers and ag allies during the event’s General Session, to be held Friday, March 4, in New Orleans, Louisiana.


“Secretary Vilsack continues to be a strong voice for farmers and ranchers, and we are jazzed to welcome him back to Commodity Classic,” said National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling. “Secretary Vilsack brings a thoughtful perspective on the top policy issues affecting the ag industry. We are especially eager to hear from him about the new Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and how that will impact farmers, ranchers, and the rural economy.”


“Commodity Classic is a wonderful opportunity for Secretary Vilsack to get his message out directly to thousands of farmers, but also to hear from them directly during the convention and trade show,” said American Soybean Association President Richard Wilkins. “We are grateful for his leadership and advocacy, and the audience always looks forward to his insights.”


Secretary Vilsack was appointed by President Barack Obama as the 30th Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and took office in January 2009. He is the fourth-longest serving Secretary of Agriculture in U.S. history. Previously, Vilsack served two terms as governor of Iowa.


Established in 1996, Commodity Classic is America's largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show, produced by the National Corn Growers Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
