On Friday Feb. 4th, at 1pm seven Alpha Zeta brothers met at the fairgrounds to go to the Southern Farm Show. Admission to the Southern Farm show is free. The Southern Farm show is a trade show showcasing different types of agricultural equipment and companies. There were many different types of tractors for us to see. They had a tobacco harvester, hay bailers, fertilize spreaders, and bushhogs. They also had different types of cattle equipment that was demonstrated. They also had cattle dog demonstrations and demonstrated how to properly vaccinate cattle. Different companies that could one day employ us were also there so it was also a great time to network. After walking through the trade show, we went to dinner and then came back to the mule pull held at the horse complex. We all had a lot of fun and it was a great opportunity for us to see some of the latest technology in agriculture.
