The New York Farm Show at Syracuse has always been a winter-time mecca for farmers. They're itching to get off the farm and see new equipment and technologies.
All major dairy equipment and building brands plus feed and crop input suppliers marketing in the Northeast are showcased. Forestry and timber-related products and services are also featured. And, this show is a one-stop marketplace for a growing number of solar and wind turbine products targeted for on-farm energy generation, plus manure-to-methane energy systems.
By mid-February, crop and milk producers have a fresh handle on old-year income plus and new-year prospects. They want to get price quotes and lock in early-season purchases. That's why so many drive from as far away as Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio – 10 states and Canada.
There's more! The New York Beef Industry Council is back with its beef-on-the-hoof breed display plus educational programs that draw beef producers. And the New York Forest Owners Association returns with jam-packed daily workshop sessions on timber and wildlife management.
That's what makes the New York Farm Show the Northeast's top-drawing indoor farmer's event of the winter, says Show Manager Scott Grigor. This 29th annual event opens at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 20, 21 and 22.
All five heated buildings will be jammed with crops, dairy, beef and building products from close to 425 exhibitors, adds Grigor. New York Farm Show is co-sponsored by the Northeast Equipment Dealers Association and American Agriculturist magazine.
