CME Group and the National 4-H Council partnered in 2013 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 hog.
The Commodity Carnival will appear at 150 state and county fairs throughout the Midwest during the summer and fall of 2016 — bring a hog to market at a fair near you.
