So did you have the opportunity to attend the Four States Farm Show held in Pittsburg, Kansas, July 22, 23, & 24, 2016? If not, you missed out on a great opportunity.
I had a friend ask me why would you want to attend the farm show? All that new equipment is more than I could afford. My answer was, It’s so much fun to go look at the new innovations in the field of Agriculture. It is fun to see the direction that the world of agriculture is headed as well as to climb all over a $250,000 John Deere combine. That right there makes it worth all the heat and sweat to attend the farm show.
And I must admit, I knew it was Farm Show Weekend because for whatever reason, every year that the farm show is held, the weather is astronomically hot!
As we entered the farm show grounds one of the local hospitals (I think it was Via Christy) was offering sunscreen and hand held fans to patrons. Then you were free to wander. There were booths set up by local John Deere dealerships, Case IH dealerships, local coops, the Kansas Beef Council, Farm Talk, Tornado safes, and so much more.
The best part of this is to walk around and learn about Agriculture. This is a great place to go if you have questions because these people are trained in their fields and they will be very knowledgeable. And something to think about… Vegetarian or Meat Eater alike, you’re life revolves around agriculture and farming practices no matter what. If it weren’t for farmers, you wouldn’t have food.
So if you’re interested in Next Year’s Farm Show, mark it on your calendar now! July 21, 22, & 23, 2017
