The Santa Gertrudis Breeders International will sponsor the beef presentations this year for the first time. In addition to the traditional presentations by Extension beef and forage specialists, the beef presentations will also feature three producers from the Southeast who will be sharing their own experiences in raising cattle.

Other presentations will cover a variety of topics relating to animal agriculture. Some of these include alpaca management, commercial fish farming and pond management, cow milking demonstrations and dairy farming presentations, goat and sheep herd health seminars, and seminars on poultry production.

Early in the history of Expo, Alabama was the first spotlight state exhibit, and this year Alabama returns as the Expo's spotlight state exhibit. Several organizations from the state are collaborating to show off the diversity of Alabama agriculture.
