Every January, Manitoba Ag Days lands in Brandon, MB, as a display of agricultural production, expertise, technology, and equipment. The three-day event attracts exhibitors and visitors from across Canada and the north-central United States and gives producers the opportunity to learn from the experts and to shop for everything they need for their agricultural operations.
The 44th edition of #MBAgDays is still on, January 18th-20th, but it will be virtual. This year’s event will be substantially more subdued; in the past, it’s welcomed over 550 exhibitors encompassing all 540,000 square feet of the Keystone Centre in Brandon – making it Canada’s largest indoor farm show.
With no showcase for businesses to launch their products, Ag Days has moved virtually for 2021 and developed a promotions plan called the Innovation Showcase. They have created seven categories that companies can enter, whether a new product, item, service, or invention. They will provide their patrons with the information they need through their website Agdays.com, print publications, and on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
We love to see the Manitoba Ag Days organization ‘Giving Back’ again this year. They have announced that 15 communities across the province will receive $1000 each to support their Early Learning Centres. To help with this initiative, join their 50/50 draw running from December 19, 2020, to January 21, 2021. Buy a ticket to support at www.agdays.com/buy5050.
Focus on Farm Succession Planning
For this year’s Ag Days, Westoba’s team of experts is focusing on farm succession planning. It’s never too early to start educating yourself and your family about the options for farm transitions. Even if your family isn’t quite ready to put a formal plan in place, the sooner you start learning and laying the groundwork, the easier it will be.
Visit Ag Days’ own social channels, and keep an eye on our website and social channels for Farm Succession planning info. Book an appointment here or call us at 1-877-WESTOBA to start your farm succession strategy.
Be safe and stay healthy so we can all be together again, stronger than ever!
