Saturday, Feb. 25, Brown County Farm Bureau partnered with Georgetown Farm Supply to host the 2nd Annual Southern Ohio Ag Expo at the Brown County Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. During this event, breakfast and lunch were catered for the public and agricultural businesses were invited to set up to showcase the products and services that they offer.
It was a great time for kids and adults to take advantage of specials only available at the Ag Expo, check out new products with hands-on demonstrations, visit with 20+ company representatives and ag agencies, view the large outdoor display of machinery and livestock equipment, and of course the petting zoo! Even the new Ohio Department of Agriculture Director Brian Baldridge stopped in to see the latest and greatest available to those in attendance.
