MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — Registration is open for the third annual Great Lakes Crop Summit (GLCS) on Jan. 27-28 at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant, Mich.
Last year, the event attracted more than 700 farmers from across the state last year and this year promises to be another “can’t miss” event. The two-day event features speakers from universities, industry and private consulting firms representing five different states and a trade show with more than 60 exhibitors sharing their best resources.
Topics cover everything from crop production practices and family succession planning to consumer trends, exports, ethanol and more. Farmers will be able to earn CCA and RUP credits for attending.
This year, GLCS is pleased to welcome three nationally-acclaimed keynote speakers:
- Jolene Brown, a well-known motivational speaker who truly understands farmers. She will discuss succession planning and the challenges of managing a family farm.
- Terry Fleck is the executive director of the Center for Food Integrity. He will discuss building trust and confidence in our food system and the importance of crisis management.
- Randy Dowdy is a first generation Georgia farmer and winner of the National Corn Yield Contest. He will talk about professional results in daily efforts, a motto that has worked for him.
