COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) - Folks at the Sunbelt Expo work year round to bring farmers the latest and greatest technology in the ag industry.
On Wednesday, about 35 participants attended a showcase by Kubota.
They got a first look at Kubota's newest tractor, the M7, and got to drive them in the Expo's experimental fields.
The Sunbelt Expo has an estimated $20 million economic impact throughout the Southwest Georgia region.
"Many people don't realize exactly how many ag events that we have here at the Sunbelt Expo other than just the actual Expo taking place in October," said Farm Manager Cody Mitchell. "Field Day is another great opportunity for ag-related activities at the Sunbelt Ag Expo."
Clay Dell, Kubota Regional Sales Manager, said, "I've had multiple events out here. I had a hay demonstration out here earlier this spring as well as our M-7 event today. So we really do appreciate North America's premiere farm show Sunbelt Ag Expo."
Next year's Sunbelt Ag Expo will be the 40th anniversary.
