USAgNet - 02/17/2020

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue will be the keynote speaker during the General Session at the 2020 Commodity Classic held Feb. 27-29, 2020, in San Antonio, Tex. The General Session is scheduled for Friday morning, Feb. 28, at 9 a.m. at the Henry B. Gonzáles Convention Center.

Secretary Perdue came by his knowledge of agriculture early: He was born into a farming family in Bonaire, Georgia. From childhood, and through his life in business and elected office, Secretary Perdue has experienced the industry from every possible perspective. Uniquely qualified as a former farmer, agribusinessman, veterinarian, state legislator and governor of Georgia, he became the 31st United States Secretary of Agriculture April 25, 2017.

Secretary Perdue has served as a board member for the National Grain & Feed Association and as president of both the Georgia Feed and Grain Association and the Southeastern Feed and Grain Association. Secretary Perdue has long-standing, close relationships with the leadership of the American Farm Bureau Federation and has been recognized by the Georgia 4-H and FFA programs, among others, for his leadership in agriculture.

During the General Session, the audience will also hear an inspiring presentation from Lt. Col. Waldo Waldman, a decorated fighter pilot and New York Times bestselling author.

The General Session will include comments from the leaders of the five associations that present Commodity Classic: American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
