Formerly known as the Farm Progress Hay Expo and in its 28th year, the newly named Hay & Forage Expo will be held at the Central Iowa Expo Grounds near Boone, IA on June 25th-26th, 2014.

Working field demonstrations on more than 150 acres of land will be the feature of the Expo. Attendees can compare various equipment while operating under actual field conditions. It will include a 10 acre exhibit area with displays from major manufacturers, seed dealers, building and storage contractors, and related product suppliers.

“The Hay & Forage Expo offers the perfect combination of field demonstrations and ag product displays,” says Jungmann, National Events Manager for Farm Progress. “The exhibit field is the place to discuss seed, hay marketing, crop production, conservation and more.”

The Artex Booth is located between the Case IH and New Holland booths at the show!
