Home & Ag Expo Attracts Record Crowd

The Valley County Home & Ag Expo brought farmers, homeowners, ranchers, businesses and families together on January 12-13, 2018 at the Valley County Fairgrounds.

The biggest crowd to date – at least 250 attendees – enjoyed learning about offerings from thirty exhibitors in the home and agricultural industries. Whether it was livestock sales, lawn care, insulation or fence posts, the event showcased the quality products and services that can be found in our area.

“The Home & Ag Expo serves as a way to inform consumers about products and services that can be conveniently found close to home” shares Kristina Foth, Assistant Director for Valley County Economic Development and the Ord Area Chamber of Commerce. “Learning about opportunities to support local businesses keeps sales tax dollars in the community, it helps friends and neighbors grow their business and benefits the local economy in a variety of other ways.”

Expo attendees also enjoyed a free meal, sponsored by Valley County Economic Development (VCED) and the ten event sponsors, and great door prizes provided by exhibitors and VCED.

Free seminars, coordinated by the Central Community College Ord Learning Center, were also an attraction at the event. Scott Speck with CropMetrics spoke about precision irrigation and Amy Novak with Central Community College N-PACE shared expertise on drones and agricultural technology.
