2015 Sunbelt Expo

2015Expo 026

We had a great time at the Expo this year. The weather was nearly perfect each day. It was very cool Tuesday morning but got very warm by yesterday. I worked at the UGA building with the College of Agriculture holding down the “Ask an Agent” booth. We talked with lots of people from around the state about different types of agriculture, residential, and landowner issues. The booth showcases 4-H, FACS, and Ag Agents.

There is also lots of good food at the Expo. The Georgia Association of Agriculture County Agents worked their food booth once again this year. Pork sandwich, hot dogs and sausage dogs are on the menu. Many Ag agents in the state come down to help at the food booth. Here are some pictures of us working there yesterday:

At the Prefert Arena in the back, there were the stock horse demos and Florida whip crackers performing. We had local Thomas County 4-H riding all three days. Here are some photos from the arena yesterday:
