ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Great weather last week during all three days of the Sunbelt Ag Expo may have actually kept attendance numbers down.

Attendance figures for the three day event totaled around 82,000. That's down nearly three- thousand people over last year when 85,000 people attended the Expo.

Organizers say many southwest Georgia farmers didn't make this year's show because they were busy in their fields, harvesting cotton and peanuts.

The Expo is expected to generate about $16 million for southwest Georgia's 20 counties.
