From March 29-31, the Northlands Farm & Ranch Show will showcase all the tools of the trade for doing business while serving as a catalyst for the positive evolution of the agriculture industry.
“Northlands is proud to support agriculture in Alberta. It is, after all, our province’s number one renewable resource,” said Richard L. Andersen, President and CEO of Northlands. “The Northlands Farm & Ranch Show is a place where farmers, ranchers and industry come together to share ideas, conduct business and create educational opportunities.”
This year’s show will feature innovative farm and ranch equipment, global positioning systems and environmental technologies. Farmers and ranchers will experience more than 400 agriculture exhibits from across Canada, cutting edge industry seminars and the Northlands Performance Horse Sale presented by the Alberta Ford Dealers and Masterfeeds.
Come check out some of the highlights of the show:
