Important St. Louis Area Fall Activities-
-St. Louis All-Equipment Expo, Saturday and Sunday, December 7-8, 2002
-Farm/City Council Annual Meeting and Luncheon, Tuesday, November 12, 2002

(After reading through this information, please let me know if you and a delegation of your students would be interested in attending these activities. I would like a preliminary number count especially on the ag. career seminar as a part of the Equipment Expo. I know that Saturday, December 7th conflicts with the State Crops CDE. Thank you.)

The St. Louis All-Equipment Expo will be held on Saturday and Sunday, December 7-8, 2002, at America's Conference Center in downtown St. Louis. Show times are 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Visitors to the 2002 St. Louis All-Equipment Expo will have an outstanding opportunity to see the latest and shiniest “iron” available in the agricultural, construction and outdoor power industries. This year’s show, December 7-8, promises to have one of the largest and most diverse collections of equipment ever assembled in one spot in the Midwest. But there’s more than equipment.
The 22nd annual event will also offer an interesting mix of educational seminars, set up specifically for the variety of visitors expected to attend this year’s show. Here’s a look at some of the seminars that are being planned:
Saturday, Dec. 7
· Global Positioning Receivers: Maximizing Usage of Precision Farming Equipment (10 a.m.)
· Poisonous Plants: The Danger to Livestock and Horses (11 a.m.)
· Winter Forage Options for Cattle (1 p.m.)
Sunday, Dec. 8
· Landscape Maintenance (11 a.m.)
· Fence Law: Revisions to the Missouri Law (12 noon)
· No-Till Cropping Systems (2 p.m.)
Other seminars are still in the planning stages, including one that will likely take place on Sunday, consisting of a panel of experts addressing agricultural career opportunities. This seminar will be directed to young people about to select a career, as well as those who are thinking about a career change. The seminars will be conducted by the University of Missouri Outreach/Extension staff, an Illinois agricultural education expert, and other authorities.
This year’s Expo literally offers something for everybody…farmers, construction contractors, turf and landscape workers, students and others who just like the feel of steel and rubber. The show will have a mix of machinery, technology and information, as well as fun when kids between the ages of 4 and 12 test their strength at the pedal tractor pulling contest scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday.
The Expo will be held at America’s Center, located at 7th and Cole streets in downtown St. Louis. For more information on the event, contact the Expo office at 1-800-430-6334 or [email protected], or log on to
