Western Farm Show adds Championship Tractor Pull

The Western Farm Show will celebrate its 50th anniversary with the addition of a Championship Tractor Pull in 2011. The Western Farm Show Championship Tractor Pull will be held Feb. 25 and 26 at 7 p.m. at Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo., coinciding with the Western Farm Show, Feb. 25 through Feb. 27, next door at the American Royal Complex. The Farm Show runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 25 and 26 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 27.

"We are extremely excited to have Doug Roberts with the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Association bringing the Western Farm Show Championship Tractor Pull event to Kemper Arena during our Farm Show," says Ken Dean, manager of the Western Farm Show. "Doug and his crew are seasoned veterans. They put on more than 30 events in seven states every year." "We plan to make this an annual event."

"I've always wanted to have a pull in Kansas City," said Doug Roberts, president of the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Association. "It makes perfect sense to work directly with the staff at the Western Farm Show to make that weekend in February a must-attend event."

The 2010 Western Farm Show featured more than 500 exhibitors and occupied the entire American Royal Complex. That's more than 400,000 square feet of floor space, filled with the latest in everything for agriculture from tractors to livestock equipment, feed, seed and more. The Family Living Center and Health-and-Safety Roundup Area provide information for the whole family.

Now in its 50th year, the Western Farm Show, owned and sponsored by the SouthWestern Association, will not only feature the new Tractor Pull, but also will bring back the same exhibits you've come to expect from the Western Farm Show.

"Once again, improved technology will be a selling point of the Western Farm Show," says Dean. "This will be the first opportunity for many Midwest farmers and ranchers to see some of the newest innovations in agriculture."

Admission to the Western Farm Show is just $8, and coupons for $3 off admission are available by visiting your participating SouthWestern Association dealer. Children under 12 get in free. For more information, visit www.westernfarmshow.com.
