Manitoba Ag Days 2019 Inventor’s Showcase

Manitoba Ag Days strives to put technology at the forefront with the Inventor’s Showcase competition.  “Agriculture is one of many industries that is advancing, growing and changing at light speed.  Farmers are being pushed to evolve and change or risk being left behind.  Our exhibitors are always pushing their limits, bringing in the newest and best products on the market.” stated Kristen Phillips, Show Manager. The annual Inventor’s Showcase competition is a main attraction for patron’s attending the show seeking to find the latest technologies or innovations that will assist in creating greater efficiencies in their farming operations.  This year’s show features 14 new inventions.  All entries will be in Barn 4 (plus one additional entry in Barn 3) and will be identified with red and black draping indicating they are a participant in the Inventor’s Showcase.  Judging takes place on Tuesday and the 1st and 2nd place winners will be announced on Wednesday morning at the show. https://www.agdays.com/inventions/.
