Area farmers have a chance to check out equipment, network and take in some key information during the Thanks for Farming Tour this week.

The event runs Tuesday and Wednesday at the Stockade in Kinetic Park.

Jeremy Matuszewski, one of the Thanks for Farming Tour organizers says the "Thanks for Farming Tour" offers education, entertainment, and the opportunity to meet with and learn from innovative Ag businesses.

"Most importantly it allows us to provide a place to celebrate and thank the farming communities for what they do to give back; giving credit where credit is due."

Krissy Fiddler says equipment has been arriving on site and everything is ready to go.

"This year's event features another great lineup of speakers. Brian Voth with IntelliFARM Inc, he's talking all about the trade battles and COVID, drought wars and what's next for farmers. Our next session is with Karlah Rae Rudolph from Prairie Clarity, and she's talking about the trends in land management on the agricultural landscape."

Lesley and Matt Kelly are the keynote speakers and will talk about "How to start a conversation about mental health on the farm", while the day will wrap up with a Farmer Round Table talking about some of the hot topics in the industry today.
