2020 Kickoff Breakfast Speaker: Damian Mason
Author, Podcast Host, Agricultural Comedian

Imagine an agricultural economist talk show host crossbred with a healthy, logical futurist and knee-slapping comedian. What do you get? Why Damian Mason, the NAAA Ag Aviation Expo Kickoff Breakfast speaker on Monday, Dec. 7 at the Westin Savannah Harbor.
Our former speaker for the 2020 Kickoff Breakfast, author James Bradley is unable to travel to our 2020 Ag Aviation Expo due to being relocated to New Zealand, but we’re thrilled to have Damian Mason as our featured speaker!
Damian delivers crisp, current, agriculture commentary packed with humor and highly logical projections of where American agriculture is headed in the future. His content and message is a vast departure from the usual Ag meeting fare of weather and market updates. Damian's positive, hilarious, straight talk resonates with ag audiences from across the spectrum.
In addition to speaking at Ag meetings, Damian produces and hosts "The Business of Agriculture" podcast and the "Do Business Better" podcast. He released his book, Do Business Better - Traits, Habits, and Actions to Help You Succeed in April of 2019. His new book, Food Fear - How Fear Is Ruining Your Dinner and Why You Should Celebrate Eating was published in December of 2019. He's also extremely active on social media discussing agriculture and occasionally fighting with ag's online opponents.
Damian's clients include the biggest names in agriculture and cover every space on the table - from corn to cranberries, cotton to cattle, canned food to canola. He has spoken in all 50 U.S. states, five Canadian provinces, and seven foreign countries.
Damian was raised on a dairy farm, owns, and manages 300 acres of farm and timber land, and has a degree in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University. When Damian is not on an airplane or stage, he lives with his wife, Lori, and their dogs, Jack and Rosa. They split time between their farm in Indiana and a winter home in Arizona.
NAAA CEO Andrew Moore appeared in episode #140 of “The Business of Agriculture” Podcast in June 2020 and can be heard here.
