CME Group and the National 4-H Council partnered to create the Commodity Carnival, a fun learning activity for students to experience managing the business risks associated with producing and bringing livestock to market. The game aims to build greater literacy in agricultural science and economics at state and county fairs.
The Commodity Carnival consists of three activities that guide participants through the process of producing and selling livestock: grow your livestock, sell your livestock and win a ribbon. This year, participants will grow and sell a steer.
Buffalo County 4-H, the Buffalo County Fair and 4-H members Jacob Pronschinske, Lindsey Berg and Samantha Berg of Glencoe Hustlers 4-H Club brought the Commodity Carnival to the Buffalo County Fair on August 4, 2017.
