Visit Commodity Carnival at a Fair Near You!

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. Game participants raised a hog during the 2013 season. This year, participants will grow and sell a steer.

The Commodity Carnival will appear at nearly 120 state and county fairs throughout the Midwest during the summer and fall of 2014 — bring a steer to market at a fair near you.
