For more than 60 years, folks throughout the South have made the trip to Memphis, Tenn., to take part in the Mid-South Farm and Gin Show. In less than a week, they will once again pack up the family and head this way to see the latest in agricultural equipment, products and services and hear commodity updates and other ag-related presentations.
This year’s Gin Show takes place on March 1-2 at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis.
The Ag Updates begin at 8:30 a.m. both days. On Friday, speakers include Jimmy Dodson, NCC chairman; Carl Brothers, senior vice president, Riceland Foods and Joe Nicosia, cotton merchant. At 1:15 on Friday afternoon, Mid-South specialists will conduct a seminar on Irrigation Technology, and, at 2:30, Milo Hamilton with Firstgrain, Inc., will hold a Rice Marketing Seminar.
On Saturday morning, marketing expert, Richard Brock, will talk about the grain market outlook and marketing strategies for 2013. That afternoon at 1:30, special exhibitor seminars will be held.
The exhibits open at 9 a.m., so be sure to make the rounds and talk to the company representatives who are looking forward to visiting with you and answering any questions you might have.
Make your plans now to attend this informative, family friendly show. Cash prizes will be given away during both days, and, of course, the ever-popular puppy will be given away to some lucky person on Saturday at 3 p.m. You must be present to win.
