Brownback to attend Ag Day at Wellington Wheat Festival
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has proclaimed the long-running Wellington Wheat Festival as the state’s official Wheat Festival, which will run July 10 to 14. Combines, tractors, farm equipment, government officials and hundreds of vendors will fill downtown Wellington and The Wellington Memorial Auditorium on July 12 during Larry Steckline’s Ag Day, to be held as part of the Kansas Wheat Festival. Brownback will speak at Ag Day on the Kansas agricultural economy. U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts will appear live, via satellite from Washington, D.C., to discuss the new farm bill.
Other speakers will present current information on estate planning, grain and livestock predictions, and farmland price projections. Entrance to Ag Day and lunch are free with a coupon from event sponsors. Lunch entertainment will feature a concert by country artist, Marty Haggard, in a musical tribute to his father, the legendary Merle Haggard.
Larry Steckline’s Ag Day will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 12.
