BIG conference moves to Jan. 5-6 and Waco Convention Center

Blackland Income Growth is the largest conference for farmers and ranchers in the Blacklands region.

BIG is moving.

The Blackland Income Growth Conference, typically scheduled in early February and held at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas, for the last few years, will move to the Waco Convention Center in 2016 and is scheduled a month earlier, Jan. 5-6.

The conference will be held a month earlier to give farmers more time in advance of corn planting to incorporate much of the information shared at the conference.

Big is the largest conference for farmers and ranchers in the Blacklands region and for the past 53 years has provided producers with the latest information on new technology and cropping methods to boost yields and profits, said Ron Woolley, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service regional program leader in Stephenville.
