From February 13–16, farm enthusiasts from all parts of the country will congregate in Louisville, Kentucky to explore the 2013 National Farm Machinery Show, the largest indoor farm show in America. The John Deere Company will be just one of more than 800 companies exhibiting machines, products, and knowledge at this year’s show.

Products and services from the leading brands will be on display throughout the 27 acres of floor space, which includes industry seminars and a gift shop for families to take a timeout. The event is expected to draw more than 300,000 attendees and will be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

The National Farming Show will also be putting on its annual Championship Tractor Pull, which has been a staple of the event since its origination in 1969 at the fourth National Farming Show, making this event the oldest large-scale indoor pull in North America. Lora Berg states in a Farm Industry News article, “Whether it’s John Deere green, International red, or another color that sparks your enthusiasm, the Championship Tractor Pull is the place to show your machinery pride.” Tractor enthusiasts will be given the opportunity to walk besides the competing tractors, meet the drivers, get autographs, and take photos with the competing machines.

The 2013 National Farm Machinery Show is expected to be just as successful as in past years. During the show, farm enthusiasts from all over the country will descend on Louisville, Kentucky to see the latest farm machinery and equipment, watch the Championship Tractor Pull, or just spend a day at the nation’s largest indoor farm show.
