The American Farm Bureau Federation will host its 99th Annual Convention & IDEAg Trade Show next month. Micheal Clements has more.

Clements: Taking place January 5 - 10, in Nashville, Tennessee, the 2018 American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention & IDEAg Trade Show offers participants a full line-up of events about agriculture. IDEAg marketing manager Samantha Castro says the event is an exciting time for farmers and ranchers to come together, and learn more about their industry.

Castro: Annual Convention serves as a family reunion for Farm Bureau members. It is a great opportunity to get together and talk about the latest things in agriculture.

Clements: The event includes educational sessions, the Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge competition, the IDEAg Trade Show and tours of Tennessee agriculture, among other attractions.

Castro: Our keynote speaker this year is Reba McEntire. There are also a number of Foundation events that people can attend to help support the Foundation’s mission. We are also doing a Farm Bureau gives back event in which we’ve teamed up with outreach programs to assemble 5,000 meals for a local Nashville foodbank.

Clements: There is still time to register for AFBF’s Annual Convention. You can register to attend the event online.

Castro: There is no registration deadline, so people can register for the even on-site if they would like. However, tickets for some of those events, like Foundation Night Out and Tennessee tours, you would have to purchase online. So, I recommend everyone go to in advance, get yourself registered, and purchase tickets for all those great events.

Clements: Micheal Clements, Washington.
