2018 National Farmer Cooperatives Conference
Leaders and staff of farmer-owned cooperatives across the United States met in St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 7-8, 2018, for the Farmer Cooperatives Conference. Program topics included strategies to leverage sustainability initiatives, trade relations and U.S. agriculture, strategic growth options, succession planning and talent retention.
The conference, which is unique in its focus on farmer-owned cooperatives, was coordinated by the University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives as part of its program to build future cooperative leaders.
