The 2009 Four State Farm Show is off and running on a fast track. Set for July 17, 18 and 19, just south of Pittsburg, Kan., the area's premier agricultural event heads into its 35th year with another huge show in the making. The 25-acre farm show site will over-flow with a vast array of farm equipment, seed, feed, agri-chemicals, livestock, farm buildings, grain bins, livestock handling equipment, tires, tools, trailers and much more. The tremendous range of agriculturally-related goods and services annually provides farmers and stockmen with a unique opportunity to shop and compare in one location. With its reputation as a "selling" show, the Four State Farm Show has also become an economic opportunity as producers have come to rely on it as a place for special pricing and wide selection.
"This show has provided a connection between farmers and the agribusinesses that provide the products farmers and ranchers need," explains Farm Show Coordinator Ted Gum. "This July 17, 18 and 19, that tradition will continue with plenty for area agricultural producers to come out and see."
In addition to acre after acre of farm implements and other agricultural items, the Four State Farm Show is a great place to see equipment in action. Forage producers will have an opportunity to compare big round balers, mowers, rakes and other bale handling equipment operating under field conditions in the Show's Hay Demonstrations each afternoon at 1 p.m..
There will be a Riding Lawn Mower Test Driving Range which will give area farm and ranch families the opportunity to check out several makes and models. Parking and admission are free at the Four State Farm Show. Show hours will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The Show is located south of Pittsburg, Kan., to the junction of highways 400, 69 and K-171, then 1/2 mile east. The Four State Farm Show is sponsored by Farm Talk Newspaper. For more information, call 620-421-9450.
