Hundreds of farmers and agribusiness professionals were drawn to the TRAC in Pasco for the Real Ag 2010 Show running today and tomorrow. With information and vendor booths, and tons of heavy equipment, the TRAC was booming with networking, window shopping and seminars providing ongoing education.
Ag experts were on hand to talk with farmers about new ideas and significant changes in today’s equipment. Many seasoned farmers were on hand to reflect upon the changes in farming from the horse drawn days to new 300-hp tractors.
Agriculture/agribusiness in the Tri Cities, and throughout Benton and Franklin counties are a mainstay of our economy and job growth. The fields have evolved and bring steady employment and diversity to our region.
