In August, JoBeth Rath and Tess McKeel staffed a booth, in conjunction with ABVI, at the Empire Farm Days located in Seneca Falls, NY. The event is the largest outdoor agricultural trade show in the Northeastern U.S., showcasing all the latest tractors, farm implements, and dairy industry innovations alongside working demonstrations, live animal seminars, and more than 600 exhibits loaded with the latest agricultural information for successful farming. The booth was located in the Farm Safety Tent sponsored by NYCAHM.
