The 2014 Husker Harvest Days is recognized as the "World’s Largest Totally Irrigated Working Farm Show," and is said to provide agricultural producers with the most extensive and current information and technology available today.
Husker Harvest always falls on the first full week after Labor Day Week, which scheduled this year’s show for September 9, 10, and 11. The country and world’s top irrigation equipment and product suppliers, including John Deere, were show exhibitors at this year's event. John Deere had three booths at the event: John Deere, John Deere Commercial Worksite Products and John Deere Power Systems.
This year’s show marks Husker Harvest Days' 37th anniversary. Nebraska Farmer and the Agricultural Institute of Nebraska established the Husker Harvest Days event in 1978, on 1,000 acres of former U.S. Army Ordnance land in central Nebraska City. Since, the event has continued to deliver the latest products, services, information and practices in agriculture to help farmers improve agricultural operations. Today, Husker Harvest Days is the world’s largest farm show where all field crops and crop technology plots are irrigated.
Farmers and ranchers from 28 states and several countries gather at the event each year to see latest technology, antique farming tractors and equipment, field demonstrations, livestock handling and much more.
Husker Harvest Days is located west of Grand Island, in central Nebraska at 9000 W. Husker Highway Wood River. Admission is $12 for adults, $6 for ages 13-17, and ages 12 and under admitted free. For additional information, including future show dates, visit Husker Harvest’s website.
