McCook Farm and Ranch Expo returns Nov. 18 and 19
The McCook Farm & Ranch Expo will return to the Red Willow County Fairgrounds Nov. 18 and 19.
The show opens at 9 a.m. both days, and closes at 7 p.m., the first day and 4 p.m. the second. Admission and parking are free.
"It's a great place to come see the newest and latest in farming and technology practices," said Darren Dale, show manager. "We are expecting 300 vendors from 20 states and Canada."
Exhibitors include displays for farm and ranch equipment, seed and chemicals, agricultural services, irrigation manufacturers, financial providers, commodity organizations, colleges, governmental services, home services, furniture and art galleries.
Expo attendees will be able to meet Will Lowe, three-time PRCA world champion bareback rider, who will sign autographs both days. Pig races also will be held throughout both days. Corporate sponsors for the expo include Southwest Implement and Hometown Family Radio.
McCook is in the center of rich farmland and cattle feedlots in southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas.
"Our parking lot counts showed vehicles from 37 Nebraska counties, 20 Kansas counties, 13 Colorado counties and 10 other states," says Dale.
The fairgrounds are in north central McCook, near West Fifth and O streets.
