Manitoba's largest agricultural show gets underway at the Keystone Centre in Brandon tomorrow.

Exhibitors for Ag Days started moving in over the weekend.

Show co-manager Owen Beever says they have around 520 exhibitors, more than ever before.

"The popular features are certainly back again. Things like the Inventors' Showcase and the speaker lineup. We have a good lineup of speakers as always," he says. "The Bull Congress is growing. We actually had more entries than we could accomodate."

Equipment dealers have been busy moving their machines into the showrooms. The world's largest combine, tractor, swather and air-seeder are among machines on display. A number of manufacturers will be unveiling their equipment to the public for the first time at Ag Days.

Last year's show drew over 36 thousand visitors. Beever says they're expecting attendance numbers in the range of 35 to 40 thousand again.

The show runs daily from Tuesday through Thursday from 9am until 5pm. Admission is free.
