This first cold blast of Winter weather
creates is a great time to plan a trip to warmer climate.
As a Board of Directors member of SIA, I am hosting a Feb 24 - March 6, 2015 agricultural tour to Brazil via Trump Tours. We will view large scale South American harvest operations for Soybeans, Sugarcane, Corn, Coffee beans, Orange Juice, tropical fruits and nuts. Other tourist sites will include Brazilian ethanol production plants, the worlds largest hydro-electric generation plant , livestock, poultry, pork, milk production operations, Rio de Janeiro grain export / sea ports, Sugarloaf Mountain, Christ the Redeemer statue in Curitiba, and their terrific Iguaca Falls and Bird Park at Iguassu.

The deadline for registration and payment is 20 Nov. 2014. (i.e. 3 months before departure, to hold the discounted international airline tickets). Please make your reservations this weekend!! It will be great fun for you, other SIA members and /or friends to participate in this trip. It was originally set-up for our Singles in Agriculture group ... we are also inviting "Singles-No-More" and their friends or married couples with a common interest in worldwide agriculture. Or, if you want, you can send your other SIA friends away for 10 days.

Complete details and registration forms are included on the attached pdf document and/or available on the website listed below.
