A new building, a record number of large-equipment ag manufacturing exhibits and a 25th anniversary. All will be enjoyed, examined and/or celebrated at the Feb. 1-2 Mid-America Alfalfa Expo in Kearney, NE.

Held at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds’ recently built facility, the expo will feature more than 100 exhibiters this year, says Barb Kinnan. She’s executive director of the Nebraska Alfalfa Marketing Association (N.A.M.A.), which hosts the expo and is marking a quarter-century of service to alfalfa and forage growers.

“We have many new exhibitors as well as our strong supporters from the past,” says Kinnan. The annual N.A.M.A. fundraising auction will be held the afternoon of the first day of the show and a banquet that evening will salute the association’s history and future. The banquet will be held at the Younes Convention Center in Kearney.

The Feb. 2 speaker program will include a long-range weather forecast from Allen Dutcher, state climatologist at the Nebraska State Climate Office, and advice on how to keep from having to collect on overdue bills. Lanny Daise, account management specialist with TekCollect, Inc., will help expo participants navigate through the world of accounts receivable management.
