The 18th Annual Farmer Cooperative Conference will be held once again this fall in Minneapolis. The November 5-6 forum will give leaders the tools needed to navigate challenges ahead as top experts address strategic issues such as fertilizer markets and the changing supply chain, trends in cooperative restructuring and mergers, challenges and opportunities with rural broadband, sustainability in the value chain, and standard setting and warehousing for big data.

Now in its 18th year, this conference regularly attracts top cooperative business leaders and industry experts. They come together to share the latest in research, trends and innovative approaches used by agricultural cooperatives. 

The two-day conference will be hosted at the Radisson Blu Minneapolis. More information about the conference or to register, call 608-263-4775.

It is organized by the University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives, with assistance from a planning committee with diverse backgrounds from the cooperative, agribusiness and academic sectors.
