"We try to add some new events every year to keep the show fresh and give the producers a reason to keep coming back each year," said Steve Guenthner, show manager. Featured at this year's farm show are a full lineup of trailer manufacturers and once again a full lineup of livestock handling equipment. See the newest in grain and livestock trailers plus a full line of scales and accessories to complement the trailers. Check out several new additions to the squeeze chute demonstrations. Guenthner encourages everybody to call KFRM Radio 550 AM at 888-550-5376 to reserve his or her free sandwich supper ticket and a chair at the 4th annual "Market Shoot-Out IV" held opening day, Nov 9.
Who would have thought this year's market would be even more volatile than last year's? Speaking of volatility, the market analysts for KFRM will return for the shoot-out and provide insight to these illogical markets. The "Wall Street" effect, fund money, and world production will all certainly be discussed in an entertaining and educational format that will place Pete Loewen, Tom Leffler, Chris Havercamp and Mark Gold in the KFRM corral for the "Market Shoot-Out IV." Last year the pistols came out blazing, leaving some with a ringing in their ears, if the markets have your ears ringing don't miss the marketing event of the year. For tickets and information call KFRM at 888-550-5376. See local horsemanship clinician Scott Daily twice daily as he works the horse training demos.
