While products typically take center stage at the Farm Progress Show, for Brock Grain Systems, the focus will expand to highlight the most important aspect of their 60+ year business: the Great American Farmer.

Jenks Family Farms is a longtime Brock customer who epitomizes the Great American Farmer. They work hard, uphold honest values, and represent the best about the past, present, and future of farming.

John Tuttle, director of sales for Brock Grain Systems, says this year was the ideal time to shift the spotlight to what matters most—their customers.

“The past 16 months have been challenging in different ways for everyone. And we know it’s farmers who face challenges year in and year out, yet they meet them head on, with drive and determination,” said Tuttle. “We’re proud of the Jenks family, and all the Great American Farmers and the work they do every day. We’re excited to be highlighting them at this year’s show.”

Supporting farmers with grain marketing insights

To help support the Great American Farmer, Brock is proud to host Richard Brock of The Brock Report for four presentations at the Farm Progress Show. Presentations will be held inside the Brock display bin at booth 1203 in the Northeast quadrant of the show grounds on Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

In addition to learning valuable insights about grain marketing, all attendees will receive access to a free month of Brock Associates publications. One attendee will win an entire year of service which includes The Brock Report commodity advisory newsletter, Daily Market Comments, and Market Edge web-based seminars. These resources represent nearly a $900 value.

Brock will also be recognizing the contributions of farmers with free reusable grocery bags for show attendees. The bags highlight the importance of farmers with the text: These groceries brought to you by the Great American Farmer. Bags are available while supplies last.

The Farm Progress Show runs from August 31–September 2 in Decatur, Illinois. For more information, visit farmprogressshow.com.
