Farm Journal Field Days is a combination of virtual and live programming to take place Aug. 25–27. The more than 100 informational sessions align with key interests and needs of the crop and livestock sectors.
Virtual programming, which consists of live sessions, webinars, eBooks, audio recordings, educational materials and more, includes:
- a main stage with powerful keynote speakers and demonstrations
- special pavilions for equipment, crops, livestock, technology and other topics
- interactive exhibits from leading agribusiness companies
- interactive discussions with other farmers and ranchers.
Why should farmers attend?
- Powerful and Insightful Speakers: Hear from leading experts such as meteorologist Eric Snodgrass, ag economist David Kohl, machinery expert Greg Peterson, Farm Journal columnist John Phipps and more!
- Easily Accessible: Since it is online, you are not limited by geography or time restraints. This type of programming is more convenient in every way.
- On-Demand Learning: Even though the virtual event spans three days, you can learn at your own pace. Log on at certain times to hear your favorite speakers, and then you can revisit other topics when you have the time.
- Interactive Farm Tours: Take a behind-the-scenes look at our two hosts farms—Blue Diamond Farming Company in Jesup, Iowa; and Newcomer Farms in Bryan, Ohio.
- A Safe Environment: You don’t have to worry about safety or health concerns.
- Learn As a Team: Normally, only one or two folks from your family or farm can attend in-person events. With Farm Journal Field Days, you can all learn together! Make the lunch hour a watch party, and then discuss what you learn.
- Direct Access to Exhibitors: You probably haven’t seen or interacted with your suppliers in the past few months. Visit their virtual booths, ask questions and learn about their latest offerings.
- It’s Free: To access the 100 informational sessions, you simply have to register—no cost to you!
The Farm Journal Field Days will end with the #FarmONTM Benefit Concert, headlined by Grammy-nominated and ACM award-winning country artist Lee Brice, who joins a slate of top country performers in a free virtual concert. As the grand finale of Farm Journal Field Days, the concert is Farm Journal’s way of saying thank you to everyone in agriculture for keeping our nation’s food supply moving forward.
Donations from the concert will benefit the National 4-H Council’s FOURWARD fund. The #FarmON movement is fueled by the engagement of farmers and ranchers across the nation supporting agriculture and each other.
