For three days this week the Box Elder County fairgrounds will play host to its first ever Farm and Ranch Expo. Thursday through Saturday, March 6-8, farmers, ranchers and anyone interested in components of the county’s main industry, agriculture, are invited to attend.
Western entertainment, speakers from a number of state departments, as well as related vendors and sponsors will be on hand to discuss agriculture.
A big draw during the event will be the FFA Future Tech Contest, which gives local chapter members a chance to showcase their own inventive ideas for the farming and ranching industry. Two of those next-generation farmers are Harlie McKenna of Thatcher and Cody Noyes of Fielding, both members of Bear River High School’s FFA chapter.
