2022 Alabama-Florida Peanut Trade Show A Success – Alabama Peanut Producers Association

DOTHAN, Ala. – More than 400 attendees were able to fine-tune their farming operations with information gained at the Alabama-Florida Peanut Trade Show on Feb. 3, 2022, at the National Peanut Festival fairgrounds, in Dothan, Alabama. The show is sponsored by the Alabama Peanut Producers Association, Florida Peanut Producers Association, and the National Peanut Board.


The one-day show offered peanut growers and industry partners a chance to view the products and services of over 60 exhibitors.


A complimentary lunch was provided to trade show attendees. After lunch, Bob Parker, President and CEO of the National Peanut Board (NPB), brought greetings from the NPB and updated growers on how their check-off dollars are being spent on the national level. Dr. Marshall Lamb, with the National Peanut Research Lab, provided an update on the 2022 peanut market and crop outlook. Bob Redding, of The Redding Firm, presented a legislative update as well. Dr. Darlene Cowart with Birdsong Peanuts gave an encouraging talk on the value of food safety from the peanut field to the shelling facility.


Several door prizes were given out throughout the morning of the trade show, but the prizes everyone was most looking forward to winning were announced after lunch.


The Grand Door Prize donated by Kelley Manufacturing Co. was presented to Chad Wells of Gordon, Alabama. Wells received a $5,000 voucher for any one piece of KMC equipment or parts for KMC equipment.


James Harrell of Rehobeth, Alabama, won a free trip to the Southern Peanut Growers Conference in July. Thomas Kirkland of Headland, Alabama, won a Remington 12-gauge shotgun.
