The 37th Indiana-Illinois Farm and Outdoor Power Equipment Show is officially slated to take place between Dec. 15 and 17 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis. The event, which will be hosted at the West Pavilion, is set to feature more than 350 companies, including John Deere, showcasing everything that’s new.
Twenty of the companies exhibiting their products and services at the show are new to the event. Area farmers who attend the show will have the opportunity to learn about all of the tools they can use for the next planting and harvest seasons. Seed suppliers, livestock equipment vendors and chemical dealers will be in attendance.
Furthermore, technology will be highlighted at the event. The goal is to give local farmers insight into upcoming trends and technology that can help them boost efficiency out in the field.
During each day of the three-day event, educational seminars will begin at 11 a.m. Some of the topics that will be addressed at seminars include boosting yields, reducing costs and handling weather and commodity prices. Meteorologist Ryan Martin and Gary Truitt of Hoosier Ag Today are just two of the many industry experts who will be speaking at the show.
Admission to the Indiana-Illinois Farm and Outdoor Power Equipment Show is free, although attendees will need to pay $5.00 to park a vehicle at the fairgrounds. The seminars at the event will also be free to visitors.
