Our end however are many farmers’ new start – new start with new bulls or new female animals. Even lots of new knowledge gained at the Farmers’ Day! We wish them the best of luck and hope they will be equally blessed and happy!
Many thanks to all the roll players who made this event so successful. It is not possible to achieve something like this without all of you! Agra has again kicked in big time with their sponsorship in not just organizing the Farmers’ Day and providing us with delicious food, but also to ensure that farmers are exposed to meaningful exhibitors and interesting stalls. To our other sponsors, also thanks a lot! You guys rock!
But without support for both days, in VISITORS and BUYERS, this would all have meant nothing. A big thank you to you all! We sincerely hope to see you there again next year!!
We would like to quote Jim Rohn, “Whatever good things we build end up building us.” So true!
Our reward is indeed in this joyful journey with you all! God bless.
