As area ag producers have completed their harvest and are currently looking to order seed and equipment for the upcoming growing season, I wanted to remind them of the Annual York Ag Expo that is taking place January 9 and 10 at York’s Holthus Convention Center. This two-day event is specifically organized with the producer in mind. The exhibit hall will be filled with seed and implement dealers as well as other professionals that are attending to assist farmers with all aspects of their business.
Jenny Rees with Nebraska Extension has once again been very helpful in organizing programing and discussions that exhibitors and attendees will benefit from. There will be Chemigation Training on Wednesday, January 9 and a panel discussion on the topic of the Farm Bill, Crop Insurance, Taxes and Economics. For Thursday, January 10 private applicators of pesticide will be able to receive the necessary certification (there is a $40 fee for this). The afternoon panel discussion will cover Grazing/Baling Residue & Nutrient Management.
This year, we will have a keynote speaker as we close the show. Chad Colby, an Agriculture Technologist will share the latest innovations in drone technology and how it will benefit area operations. The two-day event will close with a social hour celebrating agriculture. This event is a great opportunity for the community to visit with our area producers. There will be raffle prizes on site as well. This raffle raises funds for the Chamber Ag Scholarship Program that York County students are able to apply for. The annual expo would not be possible without the assistance from our sponsors. This year’s corporate sponsors are Central Valley Ag, Cornerstone Bank, Nebraska Rural Radio Network and York County Visitor’s Bureau. In addition, we have silver sponsors we want to acknowledge. Thank you to Curry Bros. Motorsports, Ekotuning of Nebraska/Klein’s Blue River Power, Farm Credit Services of America, Midwest Bank, Winfield United and York News Times.
