Boost Profits in 2014 – We’ll Show You How
Join us at the Farm Futures Business Summit to learn the secrets of better management

It's a new ballgame for farmers. From weather to lower prices and tighter margins, agriculture faces risk and uncertainty. Are you ready to manage the curveballs thrown your way?

The 2014 Farm Futures Business Summit, to be held Jan. 7-8 at the St. Louis Hilton Ballpark Hotel, will help you step up to the plate and learn what you need to do to build a championship farm business.

Our lineup card for this year's event is better than ever. Leading off is Dr. Dave Kohl, who will share secrets to becoming a top performing manager. Wells Fargo vice president and economist Michael Swanson shares his outlook on an increasingly stormy global economy. Farm Futures senior editor Bryce Knorr offers his take on 2014 markets.

Our cleanup hitters include CEO Greg Duerksen, who talks about the coming war for talent in agriculture; Purdue Ag economist Mike Boehlje, who will share ideas on farm expansion despite economic uncertainties; and financial adviser Kevin Bearley, who will reveal estate planning strategies that can funnel more assets to your family and not the IRS. 

Breakout topics will provide a deep dive in to best marketing practices, personnel management, farm diversification, multi-generation family operations and managerial accounting. Learn how to use production costs to make better marketing decisions. Find out how to benchmark your business to ensure you're moving in the right direction. We're also bringing back the popular 'Bear Pit' – that free-form after dinner debate where everyone gets a chance to voice their opinion.

The Summit takes place at the St. Louis Hilton Ballpark Hotel with a special room rate of just $85 per night. Early bird registration is just $299 per person, plus $249 per additional farm partner if you register by Dec. 1.

Is your team ready to hit the field? Get the latest advice from the leading agribusiness experts on the planet. Join us for a learning opportunity that will help you hit one out of the park in 2014!
