Wheat and corn and tractors, Oh my! Annual Colorado Farm Show kicks off

Posted by Green Fun Store on 2/9/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
The 47th annual Colorado Farm Show kicked off this week in The Centennial State and farmers from all over the southwest are excitedly making their way to the show to check out the farm equipment.

Gilliam and Owen Steffen of Wiggins, Colorado were visitors at the event and they told The Fence Post that tractors sold today are much smaller than the ones they remember while growing up steeped in farm life back in the 1950s and 1960s. "I never dreamed we would ever see tractors this big," Steffen said. "This is what we like about coming to the Colorado Farm Show: We can check out the latest technology."

Hundreds of vendors participate in the show every year and with the recent rise in U.S. farm incomes, the event seems to be more popular this year than in the past. This year, farmers are holding presentations on farm topics like equine, beef and agriculture. The event's organizers affirm that nearly 35,000 people will visit the farm show while it's open, chatting up the different vendors and gawking at the latest product offerings from John Deere.

When all is said and done, many of the vendors who participate say that they witness increased sales from all the attention they get at the show; the event is held annually at the Island Grove Park in Greeley.
