The annual Alabama-Florida Peanut Trade Show is fast approaching. This year’s show will be held on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds, located on Hwy 231 South, Dothan, Ala.
Sponsored by the Alabama and Florida Peanut Producers Associations, the one-day event offers farmers a full day to view the products and services of more than 80 exhibitors and a day of education. The show will be open from 8:30 a.m. until noon.
During the catered lunch there will be a legislative update followed by a grower production seminar during the afternoon. The seminar is being coordinated by the Alabama and Florida Peanut Producers Associations. A seed & production seminar has also been planned as part of the day’s events.
Peanut growers who attend will not only be able to fine tune their farming operations, but will have a chance to win hundreds of dollars in cash and prizes. This year’s Grand Door Prize of $1,000 cash is being given by Kelley Manufacturing Company. Additionally, the grand door prize winner will receive a certificate good for $6,000 towards the purchase of a new 2014 KMC Six Row Peanut Combine, or lesser amounts towards the purchase of another new 2014 KMC complete implement. These discounts are non-transferrable. The winner must be certified as a peanut grower with an FSA farm number and must be present to win.
A special Grower Prize donated by Amadas will include: $10,000 credit on an Amadas self-propelled peanut combine or $5,000 credit on the purchase of an Amadas pull-type peanut combine, or $1,000 credit on any other Amadas equipment.
