[February 10, 2014]  ST. CHARLES — Penton Farm Progress' Hay & Forage Expo, formerly called the Hay Expo, has announced its new name and alliance with Hay & Forage Grower magazine. This year’s show is set for June 25 and 26 in Boone, Iowa, at the Central Iowa Expo, which is also the location for the 2014 Farm Progress Show.

New name

The Hay & Forage Expo presents the industry's latest technology, and adding the word forage to its name recognizes the significance of forage production techniques and technology at the show.

Central Iowa Expo to host show

The exhibit field and parking for the Hay & Forage Expo is within the Central Iowa Expo facilities, and all field demonstrations will be on the alfalfa acreage that will be used as parking area during the 2014 Farm Progress Show in August. Improvements have been underway at the site since its 2012 show, including paving the streets.

"We are excited to bring the Hay & Forage Expo back to Boone," said Matt Jungmann,  national events manager for Farm Progress. "The facilities and services available to the visitors and exhibitors make it a great location to host the show. And everyone gets a ‘sneak peek’ at the new paved roads throughout the event site and additional improvements."

Latest technology and field demonstrations

Visitors to this 28th annual event get exclusive access to the latest hay and forage technology with an extensive exhibit field and working demonstrations throughout each day.

"The Hay & Forage Expo offers the perfect combination of field demonstrations and ag product displays. The exhibit field is the place to discuss seed, hay marketing, crop production, conservation and more," Jungmann said.

Working field demonstrations are a highlight of the Hay & Forage Expo. The two-day hay extravaganza showcases mowing, conditioning, tedding, merging, baling, hay handling and silage demonstrations on alfalfa acreage. Visitors will be able to compare the various equipment brands operating side by side under actual field conditions.

A 10-acre exhibit field highlights displays from the major and short-line specialty manufacturers, seed, building and storage facility suppliers, and a range of related product suppliers. Exhibitors plan to present a multitude of products aimed at boosting farmers' efficiency and profitability for their hay and forage production.
