Sunbelt Ag. Expo – Each October, Moultrie, GA hosts a premier agricultural trade show demonstrating the latest farming technologies.  With 1200 exhibitors, 300 seminars and more than 80,000 visitors the Sunbelt Ag. Expo is clearly a renowned southeastern event.  GCWA’s booth will be in the Family Living Building. 

          Our Georgia Cattlewomen spring into action, taking advantage of the popular 3-day event by creating a consumer-focused display all about beef.  Our members distribute recipes, nutritional information, teacher resources and industry information. While passing out materials, our cattlewomen also fulfill our mission by talking face to face with and answering any and all of their questions they may have about beef.
