It’s trade show season, and we have spent a great deal of time talking about the shows we’re covering, but one we haven’t talked much about on the show is our very own TechTour Live, and Lethbridge is already sold out!

Join us for RealAg Radio every weekday at 4 pm eastern on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM!
