After a multi-year hiatus, Manitoba Ag Days is back and it has created a lot of excitement in the Wheat City.
People from all over Canada and the U.S. have come to Brandon to take in the huge three-day event. This includes Jeremy Matuszewski of Thunderstruck Ag Equipment who founded the southern Manitoba company 10 years ago this February. He says they are showing off one item in the Innovation Showcase.
"We have our air missile this year. It was invented by a farmer by the name of Greg O'Hare out of Kitscoty, Alberta," says Matuszewski. "What it does, is it mounts on top of an existing aeration system and it allows guys to dry their grain evenly inside their bin. It's a huge addition. We launched it last year. It's in the Innovation Showcase and we're super pumped about that."
Matuszewski knew the event's comeback would be big and he brought ten people to help him with his booth. He's hoping you'll stop by and say hi, as he loves helping farmers solve problems. Every product you'll find at his booth was invented by a farmer.
"This has always been a huge part of our business, talking to Manitoba farmers at this show. When you have farmer-invented products, we're not the big brands," says Matuszewski. "Farmers need to come here. They need to see (the products) and we need to be able to talk to them about (the products). That's a huge huge deal. Ag Days couldn't be more exciting. We think this is going to be the busiest show of the year."
The event runs today, tomorrow and Thursday at the Keystone Centre. You can read more here.
