Water, immigration and global competitiveness are among the most challenging topics facing agribusiness professionals today. Just as challenging are potential changes in federal legislation and demands on the future of animal agriculture. To help attendees face the challenges, World Ag Expo leadership has announced plans to organize activities and information around these core hot topics during the 2011 Expo, Feb. 8-10.
For the first time, the Expo magazine and seminars will be anchored by articles focused on these specific topics:
• Animal Agriculture in 2020 – Fast forwarding the next decade of husbandry
• Water – Liquid gold, making every drop count
• Immigration Reform – The faces of ag economics
• Global Trade – Growing stability in a perishable marketplace
• Farm Bill and U.S. Agriculture Legislation – Legislating a grassroots marketplace
The articles and videotapes of seminars will be archived and available at worldagexpo.com after the Expo.
“For 44 years, World Ag Expo has been the premier destination for agriculture equipment and technology,” said Jerry Sinift, International Agri-Center chief executive officer. “The amount of information can be overwhelming. By concentrating our efforts on five core areas, we can increase awareness, help attendees plan their visit and enable them to stay abreast of trends.”
