Minot Prepares for Ag Expo

Posted: Updated:

We're just one day away from the 43rd annual KMOT AG EXPO and exhibitors are filling up the North Dakota State Fair Center. And, it's not taking long to get everything set up.

Companies from all over began their day hauling a variety of farming equipment.

With less than 24 hours before the doors open at the event, a lot of last minute details must be done.

"I mean we have millions and millions of dollars worth of products and what not. It's pretty amazing once it all gets polished up and ready to go," says Gregg Schaefer, expo manager.

More than 1,000 exhibitors are setting up for the Ag Expo making it one of the largest ones in history.

"We're just busting at the seams, I mean we could certainly use another building, more space. We got a waiting list of exhibitors wanting to get in," says Schaefer.

From spraying and polishing tires it takes a lot of hard work to get ready for opening day.

For first timers who are here to scope out the sites.

"I'd like to see the farm equipment because I use to farm out here in North Dakota. So, I like to see the new technology that they have," says Jason Zaback, Dakota Fluid Power.

To regulars who are showing off their newest products.

"The other thing we promote is that it's a high speed corn planter. So, we drive a lot of times a couple miles an hour faster than the competition because of the way our units are built," says Jesse Kappenman, Horsch Territory Manager.

The expo is a way for farmers and ranchers to showcase the latest and greatest products of its kind.

Besides all of the booths and displays, there are tons of seminars to check out.

The expo begins tomorrow and runs through Friday, January 31. Doors open at 9 a.m. for a complete list of dates and times of seminars you can log onto www.kmot.com.
