2011 Madison County Ag Expo a Huge Success
  • October 05, 2011

The 2011 Madison County Ag Expo was a huge success this year with over 500 people in attendance enjoying free food, soil testing, educational displays, door prizes and demonstrations. Madison County Kentucky Farm Bureau was on hand demonstrating their In-Line Hay Wrapper which has many benefits for hay storage including virtually no wasted feed and hay will maintain full feed value for up to eighteen months. Also, the wrapped hay is an alternative to barn storage for reduced weathering loss. Brandon Sears of the Madison County Extension Office explained the process and the affordability of a farmer renting the hay wrapper versus purchasing one. You may call the Madison County Extension Office for complete details and rental information.
There were over forty local vendors providing fresh produce to the 4-H Means Business Club exhibits, including a participant from Lexington displaying a large variety of flavored olive oil. Chris and Patti Cooper owners of Cooper Farms discussed the process of producing hydroponic lettuce, grown without soil, in which they produce locally on their family farm in Richmond . The South Eastern Antique Tractor Association had an attractive antique tractor display and 4-H programs had sheep, chickens, calves and horses for visitors to admire. This was another successful year for the Ag Expo.
