Once again the New Haven Chamber of Commerce is getting ready to celebrate the agricultural community. Every year businesses, regularly used by the rural community, come together to display their wares and speakers share pertinent information pertaining to the agricultural community.

This year’s line up of speakers will include Don Kohli and Jon Cavanaugh along with WOWO Farm Director Rob Winters, Chris Hurt Economist from Purdue University and Ted McKinney, Director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.

Ted McKinney grew up on a family farm in Tipton County, where he has continuing interests. After graduating with a degree in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University where he was named Outstanding Male Graduate, he began a successful career with Elanco Products Company, DowElanco and Dow AgroSciences. He was Director, Global Corporate Affairs for Elanco Animal Health, a division of Eli Lilly and Company. In 2013 he was appointed as the Director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.

A sausage and pancake breakfast will be provided by the Heritage and Woodlan High Schools FFA (Future Farmers of America) programs thanks to our Breakfast Sponsors: People’s Federal Savings Bank, Mid-State Farmers Mutual Ins. Co., and Beacon Credit Union.
