Attend the Branch County Farmers Day on February 19
Michigan Ag Connection - 02/06/2024

The Branch County Farmers Day has been held for over 50 years and presents an opportunity for growers, agribusiness professionals, Michigan State University Extension educators and specialists and other industry professionals to network and learn more about relevant field crop issues. This year it will be held Feb. 19 at the Branch Area Careers Center. There will be two simultaneous but separate events: educational sessions and in-person pesticide applicator testing through the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). Because the events are held at the same time, participants can attend only one or the other, so it is important to make sure you register for the correct event.

Field crops educational sessions agenda Check in and a light breakfast will start at 8 a.m. and the conference will conclude at 12 p.m. Educational sessions will begin at 8:30 a.m. and include:
