The 67th annual Mid-South Farm & Gin Show is set for March 1-2 at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, Tenn. The two-day event offers attendees the opportunity to see what’s new in the industry and hear from respected leaders, according to Timothy Price, show manager.
“We are expecting a bumper crop of new products and services at the 2019 show,” Price said in a news release. “Farmers and others interested in the latest technology are encouraged to attend to see what’s available to help them produce and market their crops.”
Ag Update seminars are scheduled for Friday and Saturday. Industry experts, including Joe Nicosia of Louis Dreyfus, will headline the Ag Update seminar on March 1. Richard Brock of Brock Associates will provide a grain marketing outlook and recommendations at the Ag Update on March 2. Both sessions begin at 8:30 a.m.
“These sessions go beyond the basic market outlook to provide marketing strategies and technology to help farmers develop the skills they need to meet new and emerging challenges,” Price said. “We continue to see market volatility; these experts will provide an outlook and direction for the future.”
Price says the 2019 show features many small- and mid-sized companies — including One Grower Publishing, parent company of Soybean South magazine — with a long history of exhibiting at the show.
The show is sponsored by Southern Cotton Ginners Association and Foundation and Delta Farm Press, and regularly attracts approximately 20,000 domestic and international decision-makers.
Hours for the 2019 Mid-South Farm & Gin Show are 9 a.m.-5 p.m., March 1; and 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., March 2. For additional information, contact Price at 901-947-3104 or visit www.farmandginshow.com.
