On Thursday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Monica Hightower talked with Chad and Rex about the upcoming Southwest Farm and Ranch Classic.

This will be the 8th year for the Southwest Farm and Ranch Classic. This year's events will include the Chamber of Commerce breakfast, with special guest speaker Texas state photographer Wyman Meinzer. Also, this year will feature a special drought and wildfire workshop, which will teach agriculture producers how to be ready for a drought.

The event will take place February 7th through 9th at the Lubbock Civic Center. Admission to the event is free. However, if you plan on attending the breakfast, you will need to reserve a place and purchase tickets. You can contact the Chamber of Commerce at 806-761-6000 for more information.
