U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns will conduct an open listening session on future U.S. farm policy on the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition grounds in Moultrie, Ga., Oct. 18.

On the opening day of the annual Sunbelt Expo, the session will seek public comments on farm policy from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Morton Exhibit Building.

With more than 1,100 exhibitors, the Sunbelt Expo Oct. 18-20 is billed as "North America's premier farm show." It draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. For more information, go to www.sunbeltexpo.com.

Expo visitors this year can learn more about poultry, Georgia's No. 1 farm commodity, in the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences building.

The CAES building will have UGA Cooperative Extension exhibits on persistent poverty and 4-H poultry judging, too. And the 4-H performing group, Clovers and Company, will provide entertainment.

Visitors can take field tours to see crop research plots conducted by CAES and UGA Cooperative Extension scientists.
