  • I wanted to go ahead and remind listeners to Save the Date for the Southern Farm Show and specifically the 19th Annual Agricultural Development Forum, which will be held Feb. 1 at 9:30 a.m. in the Holshouser Building at the State Fairgrounds.
  • The Farm Show runs Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 and is the largest one held in the Carolinas and Virginia.
  • Since the fairgrounds is home to the farm show, we get a lot of calls and questions about when it will be held.
  • The Farm Show uses nearly every bit of the fairgrounds because it features over 400 vendors who will be showcasing new tractors, new farm equipment and agricultural services.
  • You can see every make of tractor on display at the fairgrounds, which is good if you are in the market for new equipment or a tractor.
  • One of the equipment dealers will even let show guests operate pieces of their excavator equipment so they can see how it works.
  • The Farm Show is also the time of year when several commodity meetings take place.
  • And, of course, I want listeners to join us for the Agricultural Development Forum. This marks the 19th year we have held this industry meeting.
  • We are still in the planning phase, but I know will have an economic update on agriculture and a panel discussion.
  • I will also be making my annual State of Agriculture address, and we will honor our Exporter of the Year. Lunch will follow the program.
  • Mark your calendars now for Jan. 31 through Feb. 2.
