“The Innovation Showcase is back for its fifth year, featuring 32 products and services vying for the top spot in each of our seven categories”, stated Michael Cousins, Manitoba Ag Days Innovation Showcase Committee Chair. The seven categories include: Ag Technology, Agribusiness, Agricultural Equipment, Agronomics, Animal and Livestock, Farm Built Solutions and Farm Safety.

Cousins went on to say “Many companies have gotten their start at our show and we couldn't be happier to help. As producers are always looking for ways to improve how we do things on our farms and that’s why many of our attendees are drawn to this showcase.” The Innovation Showcase highlights products and services across a wide range of applications and helps both the contenders and the producers bridge from innovative ideas to on-farm adoption.

The Innovation Showcase Committee will visit with each entrant before determining the winner in each category. Winners will be announced live at the show on Wednesday, January 17, at 10am.
