Events offer chance to meet writers, see vendors

An upcoming event will give people a chance to hear from their favorite Farm News columnists, get some insight on the latest developments in the commodities markets and check out the offerings of various ag businesses.

And don’t forget the food, which will include a free watermelon feed.

The event that will offer all of that is the 2022 Farm News Ag Show. It will be held June 29-30 at the Palo Alto County Fairgrounds, 2101 Madison, in Emmetsburg.

The show hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. June 29 and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 30.

Chris Kristufek, a charted market technician and director of Trilateral Inc., will speak at 10 a.m. June 30. He worked for 15 years as a trader on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Taking in all the sights and activities at the show will surely work up a person’s appetite.

For a special treat, don’t miss the free watermelon feed from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. June 29. It is sponsored by Wyffels Hybrids.
