After an evening of polishing, painting and hanging signs, exhibitors were primed and ready for todayâ€™s slate of visitors at the 41st edition of the Oklahoma Farm Show in Oklahoma City.
The show is a service of The Farmer-Stockman magazine, which seeks to provide its readers a one-stop shopping experience for all the latest in agricultural technology.
The state fairgrounds near I-40 and I-44 were full of activity Wednesday evening as exhibitors unloaded farm and ranch equipment and began setting it up for display in three of the fairgroundâ€™s biggest buildings. The show, which runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Saturday is expected to draw visitors from around Oklahoma and surrounding states.
A variety of new livestock handling equipment is on hand at this yearâ€™s show, along with many new tractors and field implements. Irrigation equipment, industrial engines, automotive displays and feed and seed vendors complete the hundreds of displays at this yearâ€™s show.
Last minute preparations kept vendors busy Wednesday night as they cleaned, polished and put up signs for today's Oklahoma Farm Show in Oklahoma City.
"One of our favorite draws to the show is Craig Cameron with his common sense horse training techniques," says show manager Monica Hightower. "Craig will be demonstrating his talents at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day."
Also, cattle handling equipment and the latest in animal health products will be featured in twice-a-day live animal handling demonstrations, she explains.
Admission and parking are free.
