Commodity Classic 2023


The 2023 Commodity Classic was held March 9-11 in Orlando, Florida.  The Purdue University Center for Commercial Agriculture presented a Learning Center Session on Thursday, March 9 entitled Financial and Risk Management Strategies for 2023. (Slides from the presentation and the recording are now available here >>)

In the session, the expert panel shared the key lessons from 2022 and help producers plan for the financial and risk management realities of 2023. The discussion featured the latest data from the Purdue/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer. These results specifically focused on what farmers see happening with regard to their current financial situation, expected profitability in 2023, the desirability of making large investments in their farms, plans for expansion and their approach to risk management in these challenging times.

Visit us at booth #2130 during the trade show at Commodity Classic. We’re looking forward to seeing all Purdue alumni and supporters!
