• The Sunbelt Expo is ever changing, yet ever the same in its overall goal: to introduce the latest in agricultural production technology to U.S. farmers.
• If you farm, or if you want to farm, or if you have ever at any time felt close to the land, then the Expo is the place to be.
Consider this your special invitation to attend the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition.
It’s a giant farm show held during the middle of October each year near Moultrie, Ga. It’s a farm show that for 34 consecutive years has earned and built on its reputation as North America’s Premier Farm Showtm.
The Expo is ever changing, yet ever the same in its overall goal: to introduce the latest in agricultural production technology to U.S. farmers.
If you farm, or if you want to farm, or if you have ever at any time felt close to the land, then the Expo is the place to be.
The farm show will again welcome visitors during its Tuesday through Thursday schedule, this year from Oct. 18 through Oct. 20. The Expo will once again be held at its longtime permanent location, at Spence Field near Moultrie, Ga. The site is located four miles southeast of U.S. Hwy 319 on Ga. Hwy 133.
“We have had a great farm show since our first one in 1978,” says Expo director Chip Blalock, “but this year’s show will be our best one yet — with new exhibitors, new technology and our outstanding field demonstrations.
“Farmers have learned they can count on Expo to see new technology before it becomes widely available. Come see for yourself because I can assure you our exhibitors will meet or exceed your expectations.”
Blalock has seen many changes in farming and in the Expo since he became the farm show’s director in 1998. “We are proud of the professionalism of American farmers,” he says.
“We are proud to offer these farmers and their families an event that showcases all of the good they do for the people of this country. The American people can be sure they will be well fed and clothed and housed because of the efforts of the American farmers. Our farm show is a testament to the productivity of American farmers.”
Even if you’ve attended Expo every year it has been held, you’ll find something new this year. For instance, a new exhibit building just steps away from the main gate will offer an overall introduction to the dynamic agricultural industry of Georgia. It will include special exhibits sponsored by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Farm Bureau Federation.
This is just one of more than 1,200 exhibits you’ll see in the site’s 100-acre exhibit area. Many of these exhibits are contained in permanent exhibit buildings to insure that, whatever the weather, you will be comfortable while taking in the latest offerings of new farming technology. Outdoor exhibits are plentiful as well.
