Over the past thirty years, the Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year award program has honored excellence across Southern agriculture’s diverse landscape. Farmers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia are eligible for the award. State winners are selected by representatives of sponsoring organizations in each state. On Tuesday at the Willie B.

With a continuously evolving agriculture industry, the Sunbelt Ag Expo likes to incorporate a little something for everyone, including our future farmers. On Wednesday, October 16, COUNTRY Financial will sponsor the Youth Educational Challenges for students in grades 6 through 12. This year’s challenges include: floral design, and identification contests for agricultural mechanics/tools, horticulture, forestry, wildlife, and animal science. Students may compete as an individual or as part of a chapter or club. Awards will be given in each challenge to the top three finishers in the junior and senior divisions.
Plus, the Southeastern Hay Contest winners will be announced Tuesday at the Sunbelt Ag Expo. Learn more about these and many other activities taking place next week at sunbeltexpo.com.
