Published on 10 January 2011

TULARE, Calif - The 44th annual World Ag Expo 2011, Tools for Agri-Business, will run Feb. 8-10 at the International Agri-Center show grounds in Tulare, Calif. An estimated annual average of 100,000 attendees from 72 countries are expected to attend World Ag Expo this year.

The expo is the largest annual agricultural show of its kind with 1,500 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment on 2.6 million square feet of show grounds.

Adding to World Ag Expo's seminars line-up for 2011, the Beef and Livestock Pavilion seminars and demonstrations bring a new level of agriculture education to an already packed expo. Located in the 22,500-square-foot pavilion in the southwest corner of the grounds, the Beef and Livestock demonstration area will be the premier location where exhibitors will showcase new technology for the beef and livestock industry.

Below are a few of the demonstrations that are scheduled in the Beef and Livestock Pavilion during the expo.

All three days - Cattle breed associations; Red Angus, Angus and Hereford will speak on heterosis, feed efficiency, evaluations and land availability. Jon Mollhagen of Moly Mfg. Co. will have a Silencer Hydraulic Squeeze Chute for live demonstrations that will take place between seminars. Demonstrations will be held by Ultrasound Practitioner John Openshaw and Jon Mollhagen from Moly Mfg. Schedule varies, check for more information.

To top off the events in the pavilion, Top-40 Professional Bull Rider, Brendon Clark, will be signing autographs and presenting giveaways from the Professional Bull Riders exhibit space.

Over the last two years, World Ag Expo staff has seen an increase in interest in a beef and livestock area among producers who attend the expo. This interest has motivated World Ag Expo officials to create a pavilion to meet the growing demand.

"Major exhibitors in the beef and livestock industry have expressed interest in showcasing their technology in on-the-farm situations at World Ag Expo," said Lee Coito, 2011 World Ag Expo Chairman. "We have been told 'If you build it, we will come.' We believe there is no better place to showcase this technology than at World Ag Expo."

Exhibit spaces in the pavilion are available. For information contact Julia at 559-688-1030 or e-mail .
