2019 MGEA/ MABA Convention

2019 MGEA/ MABA Convention

It all starts with the hardworking set up crew, soon to be filled full of Agriculture’s leaders.

Convention center is starting to fill up with attendees.

It’s important to take a break and socialize.

Thanks to the FFA for all of their help with the auction.

2018 MABA/MGEA Convention!

The 2108 MABA/MGEA Convention was another big hit!

Hundreds of ag professionals and industry insiders gathered in Great Falls, MT January 24 – 26 for this year’s Convention and Pesticide Workshop. Here are a few pictures from the event!

 

One of the highlights was professional speaker Damian Mason. His speech filled the seats and had us all cracking up.

 

 

 

Our Thursday night banquet and auction was standing room only!

 

 

Congressman Greg Gianforte opened the banquet with a few remarks.

 

 

The day sessions were filled with people learning and earning pesticide credits.

 

 

One touching moment was when Joel Farkell presented his dad, Jeff Farkell, with the MABA Presidental Award.

 

Not many dry eyes in the room!

 

 

These are just some of the items auctioned or raffled off this year.

 

 

As usual we had lots of help from members of the FFA.

Sheridan Johnson, president of the Montana FFA, gave a great welcoming speech at the banquet.

 

 

Some silent auction items did better than others. There didn’t seem to be much demand for the Grizzly branded items!

If you went to school at U of M be sure to come next year and uphold your school’s honor!
