Peanut Farm Show set for Jan. 17 in Tifton

TIFTON — With the fifth year of record peanut yields in Georgia, there couldn't be a better year for peanut farmers and those involved in the peanut industry to learn more about the latest in the products, services and peanut research at the 2013 Georgia Peanut Farm Show. The 37th annual show and conference will be held at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center, Jan. 17, 2013, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The show is sponsored by the Georgia Peanut Commission in cooperation with the University of Georgia.

During this year's show Kelley Manufacturing Co. is providing the Grand Door Prize package for 2013. The winner receives one season's use of a new four or six row peanut combine. At the end of the 2013 season the winner has the option of purchasing the combine from a KMC dealer with $10,000 off the list price. Also, in recognition of the farm show's return to Tifton, KMC is providing a second drawing for a new digger shaker inverter of the farmer's choice for the 2013 harvest season. The winner will also have the option of purchasing the digger through a KMC dealer with $3,000 off the list price.

Additionally, farmers can register to win the Grower Prize, donated by Amadas Industries. This prize is a certificate for $10,000 towards the purchase of any new Amadas self-propelled combine.

The winners of the Grand Door Prize and the Grower Prize must be a certified peanut farmer with a FSA farm number.

The one-day show offers farmers a full day to view the products and services of more than 85 exhibitors and a day of education. The Georgia Peanut Commission will present a short program beginning at 11:15 a.m. that will cover award presentations and other special recognitions. A free luncheon will follow for all peanut farmers in attendance and an opportunity for farmers to win more than $40,000 in door prizes.

Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
