Wisconsin’s annual Corn/Soy Expo is set for Feb. 2-3 at the Kalahari Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells, with a program highlighted by legendary farm broadcaster Orion Samuelson, University of Illinois crop specialist Fred Below and farmer-columnist John Phipps.
Corn/Soy Expo is the state’s hallmark event for crop farmers. Programming features Early Riser sessions both days, two general sessions, a variety of educational breakout sessions and time for networking with other farmers and industry representatives. A trade show with more than120 exhibitors opens at 11a.m. on Feb. 2 and runs throughout the two-day event.
Annual meetings of state soybean, corn and pork groups take place at noon on Feb. 2. While the association annual meetings are free, open to the public and no advance registration is required, admission to all other meetings and the trade show requires a registration fee.
The Wisconsin Corn/Soy Expo is a great opportunity to mix farm business with family time. Members of the Wisconsin Soybean Association and the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association save substantially on registration to the two-day event, which includes free admission to the annual Wisconsin Pork Association Taste of Elegance, morning coffee and rolls, two lunches, breaks, an evening reception, industry trade show and admission to all programs. Those registering before Jan. 15 save an additional $50 on registration fees.
