The University of Georgia president was among the thousands of visitors to day one of the Sunbelt Ag Expo.

President Jere Morehead said it's important for the university to have a presence at the expo since so many jobs in Georgia are connected to agriculture.

Having students and  faculty at the massive farm show allows them to see the  latest and greatest technology available.

"It's important to remember that so much of the growth and change is because of the research going on at the university of Georgia, And we want people to realize that we are involved in advancing agriculture in this state and I think we've done a very good job in that regard," said Morehead.

The president has not missed an Ag Expo since he has been at the university.
