Speaker - Damian Mason
Imagine a talk show host mixed with an Agricultural economist with a healthy
dose of comedian. That’s Damian Mason.
Damian delivers crisp, current, Ag commentary packed with humor. 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 just
released his latest book, Do Business Better — Traits, Habits, and Actions to

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 isn’t on an airplane or stage, he lives with his wife, Lori, and their
