Northern Corn and Soybean Expo will be held virtually
February 23 and 24, 2021
After careful consideration and discussion among their respective boards, the North Dakota Corn Utilization Council (NDCUC), the North Dakota Corn Growers Association (NDCGA), the North Dakota Soybean Council (NDSC), and the North Dakota Soybean Growers Association (NDSGA) will transition the fourth annual Northern Corn and Soybean Expo to a virtual format in 2021 due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions.
The Northern Corn and Soybean Expo, traditionally a one-day event, will be held virtually in two back-to-back morning sessions, February 23 and 24, 2021. The NDSGA and the NDCGA will hold their respective annual meetings on Wednesday, February 24. A livestream broadcast will be available for North Dakota farmers.
This year’s agenda will include a live virtual taping of the U.S. Farm Report. The taping will be moderated by Tyne Morgan, and the panel will feature commodity marketing specialists and a virtual question and answer segment. There will also be weather insights from Eric Snodgrass, and a dive into agricultural advocacy with Rob Sharkey, also known in digital circles as The Shark Farmer. A more detailed agenda will be published soon.
The Northern Corn and Soybean Expo (Expo) is held annually by the North Dakota Corn Utilization Council (NDCUC), the North Dakota Corn Growers Association (NDCGA), the North Dakota Soybean Council (NDSC), and the North Dakota Soybean Growers Association (NDSGA). The Expo is a free event designed to benefit corn and soybean producers. The Expo features informative sessions on current issues affecting producers’ operation, nationally-acclaimed speakers covering important topics and electronic promotions featuring companies showcasing emerging technologies and products.
