What our participants are saying

“We in the meat industry try to speak with a cross-sector of agricultural commodities all the time because we use so many of those commodities in our production cycles that it’s important for us to educate others as to what’s happening in our industry.”
American Meat Institute

“Nearly 50 percent of our soybeans go out as an exported product, so it’s important to be able to maintain relationships, build relationships and that eventually ends in market opportunity for our farmers.”
State of Minnesota
“I found the Summit very enlightening and just as important a productive way to network. I greatly appreciate the work that your organization has performed.”
Mizuho Bank, Ltd
“I really enjoyed OGTS. Good content, good location, good networking. Speakers were good overall, especially the last keynote as we certainly want to be aware of what’s going on outside our region and I am personally very interested in international ag.”
Farm Credit East

“It’s a good place to network and expand our presence in the marketplace. We have access to all the key players in the transportation, logistics and infrastructure industries. We’ve been doing this for three years, and there has been superb turnouts every year.”
Illinois Soybean
