The Roundup -

Speaker Damian Mason is Scheduled to be This Year's Ag Days Entertainment March 3rd


International speaker Damian Mason will be presenting Humor for the Heart of Ag, a highly entertaining and educational presentation focusing on Agricultural Reinvention.

The MonDak Ag Days and Trade Show, which was formerly held in January, has been moved to March 3rd and 4th in 2016. The two-day trade show will hold educational sessions at the Richland County Event Center featuring the latest and greatest information and developments for Agricultural producers such as GMOs, livestock, and horticulture. It will begin at 9:00am on March 3rd with the Sidney Sugar's Growers Meeting taking place that afternoon; this is the first year that Ag Days and the Growers Meeting will be held in conjunction. The social will begin at 5:00pm with the banquet to follow at 6:00pm. This year's entertainment will be speaker Damian Mason with his presentation of Humor for the Heart of Ag. Mason has been speaking for 21 years with over 1,600 appearances in all fifty states and eight foreign countries delivering his humorous, energetic, and informative presentations about Agricultural and Business Reinvention. Mason grew up on a dairy farm and currently owns and manages a farm in Indiana; he graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Agricultural Economics, is a member of the Screen Actors Guild, and holds Certified Speaking Professional Designation with the National Speakers Association. On March 4th, the day will start with breakfast at 6:30am and the Trade Show will begin at 8:00am. The reason for the change of timing is largely due to the declining attendance over the last couple years, as January weather doesn't generally cooperate with the event that draws people from multiple counties and while calving could be an issue, the hope is to rejuvenate the annual event. Banquet Tickets will go on sale in mid-January and are available through the Extension Office.
