Get Your Farm On at the Four States Farm Show

By Crawford County July 20, 2017

Taking a day off is a rarity for most of the area’s farmers and ranchers. Animals have to be fed, fields must be tended and other chores have to be done daily. But, when the Four States Farm Show comes to town, a trip away from the daily grind is often in order!

Scheduled for July 21 to 23, the 2017 show promises over 700 exhibits on a 25-acre site. Expanding from much smaller beginnings, the show has grown impressively since its inception in 1975.

Attendees enjoy free parking and admission as they browse the latest innovations in agricultural products. From product displays to equipment demonstrations, there’s something for anyone who farms or owns livestock of any kind. Standard products featured include:

  • All major lines of farm machinery
  • Seed
  • Feed products
  • Agrichemicals
  • Grain bins
  • Buildings
  • Livestock equipment
  • Tires
  • Tools
  • Trailers
  • Vehicles
  • Vehicles
  • Heavy equipment (skid loaders, etc.)

Over the years, the show has evolved into a “mall of agriculture,” according to Farm Talk Newspaper, the sponsor, and organizer of the show. Unlike simply hearing about new products or equipment, show attendees often have the opportunity to see exhibited products in action and talk to knowledgeable distributors about the product’s real-world applications for them.

Conveniently located just south of Pittsburg, ½ mile east of the junction of Highways 400, 69 and 171, the Four States Farm Show is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

In addition to a wide array of exhibits, several opportunities to win prizes or cash may be available through Farm Talk Newspaper’s and other exhibitors’ drawings and giveaways.

Don’t miss out! There’s something for everyone… including pineapple whip!
