National Farm Machinery Show, Feb. 15-18

     The 47th National Farm Machinery Show is underway in Louisville, Kentucky, showcasing the new and innovative farm equipment, technology, and products. This four day trade show attracts over 300,000 visitors from all over the world and I'm very fortunate to have it in my state and less than 100 miles away. As a beef producer I'm personally not interested in the new tractors and other equipment, I leave that to my husband and son, but I enjoy seeing the new livestock handling equipment, animal nutrition products, agriculture publications and associations, and visiting with everyone. The Family Living Center offers unique gifts, farm toys, and accessories for the home, so there's something for everyone.
     The show began Wednesday, February 15, and continues through Saturday, February 18, and it's not too late to make plans to attend. For more information go to: http://www.farmmachineryshow.org/  Admission to the National Farm Machinery Show is free. Tickets are required for the Championship Tractor Pull and note that tickets to the Saturday evening pull are the first to sell out but, tickets may still be available. It's a great event for the entire family and you never know what you'll learn or who you might see.
