The Farm Progress Hay & Forage Expo is the #1 Hay Event in the nation. Extensive haying demonstrations, displays by top manufacturers and educational opportunities help to set the Hay & Forage Expo apart. Products featured at the Hay & Forage Expo cover every aspect of planting, growing, harvesting, storing and feeding hay. The Hay & Forage Expo has been expanded to a two-day format to better serve producers interested in attending the show.
The 30th annual Hay & Forage Expo is scheduled for Boone, Iowa this June 22 and 23. The event rotates between locations in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The Central Iowa Expo is the same location as the 2016 Farm Progress Show, scheduled for the end of August. The Hay & Forage Expo exhibit field and parking will be located within the CIE grounds and the alfalfa acreage used for the parking lots during the Farm Progress Show will be used as the demonstration fields for the Hay & Forage Expo.
