The second annual Texas AgXchange, an outdoor Farm and Ranch Show, will partner with Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service’s annual conference. The two-day outdoor “working farm show” will take place Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 2 and 3, at the RMB fairgrounds in Robstown. Admission to the show, the conference and the field demos are free.

The AgriLIFE conference will take place on Thursday, Oct. 3, at the RMB Regional Fairgrounds. The event will offer free CEU credits to South Texas farmers and ranchers.

“We enjoy our partnership with the Texas AgXchange,” said AgriLIFE’s South Region Program Director and Associate Professor Monty C. Dozier, PhD. According to Dozier, “The farmers like that we host our conference with a large farm and ranch show, as it provides them with more to do, all at one location. They can see the new technology not only on display but working in the field demos as well.”

The show will include nearly 200 exhibitors. “The show has nearly doubled in size from last year,” stated Greg Geisler, CEO of VerticalXchange, producer of Texas AgXchange.
