A NOTE TO OUR EXHIBITORS REGARDING ATTENDEE LIST SCAMS
The IDEAg Group does not work with any company claiming to have the attendee lists for our shows. Should you receive a communication from anyone other than show management, please disregard! These companies do not have a list our attendees, or their contact information, and will not be able to provide you with a service once they have your money.
We at IDEAg Group are always looking to protect our customers. Please be alert and if you have any questions about the validity of a communication you've received, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the beginning of August, I met with members of the House Agriculture Committee as part of their visit to IDEAg’s Minnesota Farmfest in Redwood Falls. The committee held a listening session on the 2018 farm bill, creating a platform for local farmers and ranchers to share their stories, their concerns and insights about what keeps them up at night. Because farmers and ranchers make up less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, we must continue to engage. We must carry forward the conversations we had during Minnesota Farmfest about how decisions being made on farm policy affect our livelihoods.
We have a long way to go before the 2018 farm bill is completed. We hope a new farm bill will be passed by next August but, either way, Minnesota Farmfest is the perfect place to continue the conversation about farm policy and other agricultural issues and see the newest and best cutting-edge technology available to the American farmer. So, join us August 7-9, 2018.. By engaging in the conversation you will help mold the future of American agriculture.
