Western Illinois University's (WIU) School of Agriculture canceled the Feb. 6-7 51st Ag Mech Farm Expo because of COVID restrictions. Hosted by WIU’s Agriculture Mechanization Club, the 2022 show is scheduled for Feb. 5-6.

"We are very disappointed that we are unable to host the 51st WIU Ag Mech Show this year. However, under the current COVID-19 restrictions of the university, we are unable to do so," Jana Knupp, Ag Mech Club co-adviser, said in a statement. "We will be in touch with all registered vendors to discuss their options moving forward. We hope to see everyone again next year.”

The annual event draws more than 150 vendors and offers networking opportunities for students.
