Hundreds of farmers will visit Mobile July 30-Aug. 2 for tours, workshops, awards presentations and the Alabama Farm & Land Expo Trade Show.
Formerly the Commodity Producers Conference, the Alabama Farmers Federation rebranded the annual event as the Alabama Farm & Land Expo. Registration closes June 25 at FarmAndLandExpo.org.
Farm tours disperse across Baldwin, Escambia and Mobile counties during the conference, covering a variety of commodities and agricultural industries.
Saturday’s general session will cover trade agreements and agriculture’s response to COVID-19. The panel includes Daniel Whitley. Whitley oversees trade policy, market intelligence, and commodity analysis activities for the Foreign Agricultural Service as associate administrator. Other panelists are American Farm Bureau Federation Chief Economist John Newton and Allendale President Steve Georgy.
Workshops follow the general session. Topics include a harvest outlook, invasive species, social media marketing, meat exports, land management, grain bin safety and investments.
Attendees can interact with industry leaders during the Alabama Farm & Land Expo Trade Show the afternoon of Aug. 1. Exhibitors include machinery dealers, agricultural lenders, land consultants, livestock health specialists, feed and seed companies, and researchers. Interested exhibitors can learn more at FarmAndLandExpo.org.
Country music singer-songwriter Billy Dean will entertain attendees to close the conference.
