Valdosta - A popular agricultural program has outgrown its present venue.

The Lancaster Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year program has grown so much that a new venue was needed. This year's awards presentation will be held at the Lowndes County Conference Center in Valdosta.

"We've had a great run in Albany, but Valdosta has this beautiful new Conference Center, and we have grown so much over the years. We just need to have a larger venue to have our Monday night banquet," said Chip Blalock Executive Director of the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition.

The Farmer of the Year program is promoted in eight states; Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
