Spend time at the Farm News Ag Show | News, Sports, Jobs
Plan to spend some time at the annual Farm News Ag Show. It will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Palo Alto County Fairgrounds, 2101 Madison St., Emmetsburg.
The fair will appeal to those who are even interested in agriculture occasionally, but for those who want more in-depth information, it will showcase a wide range of agricultural products and services. There will be a lot on the exhibit floor and in outdoor exhibits to broaden attendees’ knowledge of the options available today as well as what is on the drawing boards for tomorrow.
Food for thought is at the heart of a successful exhibition. With that in mind, here are the speakers the show will feature:
• David Kruse, Chairman of CommStock Investments and author of the CommStock report, will speak at 8:30 am on “A perfect storm blows a wind in the back of the family economy.”
• Farm News columnist Jerry Nelson will speak at 10:30 am on “Dear County Agent, The Saga of an Accidental Writer.”
• Dan Bjorklund, Seed Team Leader at MaxYield Coop, will speak at 1 pm on “300 bushels per acre on average possible /”?
• Rick Friday, Farm News cartoonist, will speak at 3 p.m. “A life on the farm, a farm woman and the long walk home.”
Friday will also have a booth where he will create art and sign autographs.
Intellectual stimulation will be complemented by an assortment of good foods. Food trucks from Girl’d Cheese and Double M Catering Sandwich Shop will be present.
Free entry. There will also be plenty of free parking lots.
The Farm News Ag Show 2021 promises to be a wonderful opportunity for education, great conversation, great food and just plain fun. We’ll see each other there.
