June 23, 2017, Arlington, WI – If you’re in the market for new manure application equipment, researching a manure management system for your operation, or just like to keep up-to-date on the latest advances in the industry, the 2017 North American Manure Expo – being held August 22 and 23 in Arlington, Wisc. – is the place to be.
“Innovation. Research. Solutions – this year’s North American Manure Expo has it all,” says Sharon Kauk, who manages exhibitor and sponsorship inquiries for the show. “We have an impressive line up of exhibitors for the trade show, all specializing in manure; everything from equipment to inject, spread, compost, and agitate manure to additives to assist in healthy pits and lagoons.”
A veritable miniature city dedicated to all things manure-related is being constructed in a field at the Arlington Agriculture Research Station, off Highway 51 near Arlington. More than 80 manufacturers and service providers will be exhibiting their wares as part of the annual expo’s trade show, open noon to 8 p.m. on August 22 and 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on August 23.
“There are a multitude of reasons you should be visiting the trade show,” says Kauk. “The networking is amazing, providing opportunities to build relationships with your suppliers. You can also get up close and hands on with the manure handling equipment.”
To help open the trade show August 22, several manufacturers will be holding evening industry education sessions starting at 4 p.m. Participating companies include:
Puck Custom Enterprises (PCE) – Pump school
MSA Professional Services – Manure gas safety
Many manufacturers and businesses use the North American Manure Expo to launch new products so be sure to visit all the exhibitor booths in the trade show. You never know what new ideas and surprises await you.
Of course, the North American Manure Expo is more than a trade show. The event also features a morning of industry tours ($20 fee) and, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., agitation demonstrations on August 22 plus a line up of compost, solid and liquid manure application demonstrations and education sessions on August 23.
