2013 WPS Farm Show Benefits Farmers, Vendors, and Youth
For the 53rd consecutive year, the 2013 Wisconsin Public Service Farm Show (March 26–28) is showcasing the latest farming equipment, machinery, tools, and services to working farmers from around the country. Since its inception in 1960, the WPS Farm Show has been designed for farmers, but vendors also look forward to the event, according to a Wisconsin State Farmer article.
The vendors on display at this year’s show are featuring a number of products and services—including tractors, field machinery and parts, ventilation systems, watering equipment, and seed, feed, and fertilizer—making the show a prime destination for those looking to sell. In addition to the vendor displays, the show also features a Kiddie Pedal Tractor Pull and a fundraiser benefiting the National FFA Organization, which raised more than $5,000 in 2012.
WPS Farm Show Manager Rob Juneau says in the Wisconsin State Farmer article, “WPS is picky about who gets vendor space at the Farm Show. We want vendors that provide education and can help farmer's improve their efficiency. They must be ag related. But once they're in, vendors usually end up coming back year after year."
The show is taking place at the Experimental Aviation Association (EAA) Grounds in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and is expected to exceed 460 vendors, the number of vendors who attended last year’s show. It’s also expected to draw visitors from throughout Wisconsin, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Minnesota, Illinois, and Canada, according to the WPS website.
