About 150 producers and others attended the 5th Annual Imperial Chamber of Commerce Ag Technology Fair Jan. 16. Twenty vendors showed area producers new technology, equipment and answered questions about their services.
Organizer Dave Oxford said those participating were pleased with the attendance and the age span of the crowd.
“I would like to see more of the younger generation (of producers) come,” he noted. “It is an appreciation, so we want to thank all ages” of producers.
For the first time, the Ag Tech Fair featured a speaker, Robert Tigner of SW Four Extension Service. Oxford said the speaker option will be expanded next year.
