Farmers, ranchers and companies from as far away as Canada and the Dakotas all came to the MATE Show.

The 43rd Montana Agri-Trade Exposition (MATE) draws buyers and sellers for the latest agriculture technology at the Metrapark Expo Center and Montana Pavilion.

It’s a chance for those attending to make deals and find leads for businesses and see a few friends.

“The farmers and ranchers want to come out here because it’s a great place to meet up with old friends and see those folks that you only get to see once a year at the MATE Show,” said McCall Linke, communications director.

There is already a waiting list for next year and businesses have already turned in their signed contracts for the 2020 MATE Show.
