The 18th Annual Farmer Cooperatives Conference returns to downtown Minneapolis November 5 & 6 for education and networking. Attendees will spend two days with top agricultural cooperative leadership as they address today's most pressing competitive challenges. Cooperative experts will present their latest research and cooperative leaders will leave with new strategies and techniques to improve their farmer-owned cooperative.


The Farmer Cooperatives Conference is a national event highlighting the latest strategic thinking on current cooperative issues and trends. It provides a forum for cooperative directors, managers, and those doing business with agricultural cooperatives to learn and exchange ideas with policy, research, and legal experts about issues currently affecting the agricultural cooperative community.

Organized by the University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives with assistance from a national planning committee of business and academic experts, this conference is made possible through the strong support of leaders in the agricultural cooperative sector.
