Pictures catch a small slice of Sunbelt Ag Expo

The weather wanted the 40th annual Sunbelt Ag Expo show to go perfect.

The weather wanted the 40th annual Sunbelt Ag Expo show to go perfect.

“We’ve had a great week so far. The Lord has blessed us with beautiful weather. It’s cool and breezy,” said Chip Blalock, executive director of the Sunbelt Ag Expo.

The show started in 1978 with 410 exhibitors on about 25 acres on Spence Field in Moultrie, Ga. This year, Blalock said, the show hosted 1,200 exhibitors, and 100 of them were new to the show, on about 100 acres of exhibitor space representing more than 4,000 products and services. Of the original 410 exhibitors, 23 have participated in each of the 40 years of the show.

“The success of the Sunbelt Ag Expo is built on the fact that we adhere to our main mission: To provide an environment to bring exhibitors and farmers together to learn from one another and ultimately for those farmers to purchase machinery, technology and services from those exhibitors,” he said.

Blalock said the Expo also strives to provide a family-friendly atmosphere with many exhibitors providing products and services and activities for people of all ages who come to the Expo to learn more about opportunities and benefits of the rural lifestyle.
