Manitoba Ag Days kicks off on January 20th and runs until January 22nd, beginning at 10 am (free admission.) The show is an exposition of agricultural production expertise, technology, and equipment that attracts exhibitors and visitors from across Canada and the North Central United States.
At the show you’ll have the chance to listen to speakers in the FCC theatre and MNP theatre. See below for a list of topics and dates!
Tuesday’s Speakers will present:
· Manitoba Canola Growers Program
· Managing your people
· Manitoba, Canada and the world
· Outlook session.
Wednesday’s Speakers will present:

· Farming with technology
· Let’s talk Beef.
Thursday’s Speakers will present:

· Considerations for the field.
The show also gives out awards for the “Inventor’s Showcase” which encourages individuals and companies to develop products that will offer greater efficiency to farmers and their operations. There is also an award for the best new product of the year.
A 50/50 draw takes place every year at the Manitoba Ag Days, with last year’s proceeds of nearly $8,000 given to STARS Air ambulance. Make sure to buy your 50/50 tickets – there’s the chance to win fantastic prizes as well as support a great cause!
Student Agricultural Tours
Another great thing that the Manitoba Ag days offers is Educational tours for students. The students discover the importance of the local Manitoba agriculture industry by following clues to find out information about agriculture from participating booths. Each participating school will be entered to win one Made in Manitoba Breakfast for their school. Made in Manitoba Breakfast includes a breakfast for students at their school and a further learning opportunity on agriculture.
Schools will be reimbursed a percentage of their transportation costs – the actual coverage is dependent upon number of schools participating.
There are tons of exhibitors, information and fun!!! Agtron is one of the many exhibitors to check out at the show, so come check out our booth! We’ve got a brand new display that was featured at the Agri-trade show in Red Deere and last week at The Crop Production show in Saskatoon. Our booth is located in Westman Place Concourse number 1215. See you there!!
