National Farm Machinery Show 2011 - Louisville, Ky.

| 3/2/2011 3:05:50 PM

The slogan this year for the National Farm Machinery Show was “We’re like Candy for Farmers”. That definitely fits for this show as well as the other tractor shows in the country. Tractors, new and old, bring a smile to our faces. Held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, I mean Lu’val (you gotta say it right when you’re there!), admission is FREE. Hey, Free Candy!

According to Ellen Anderson, Kentucky Exposition Center Public Relations, this year’s show saw the fourth highest attendance total of all time! 302,424 people attended this year’s big event. It’s really amazing how many people are walking the aisles and how many trucks are in line to get in every morning. With the show and the Championship Tractor Pull, I could only imagine how much revenue the city sees that week! And I found out! The show generated a $21.5 million annual economic impact across the area.

Farmers and business owners, getting ready for the upcoming farming season, can see free seminars, innovative technology, new product launches, alternative energy and many more ideas for their business.

I snapped a few pictures of some of the booths at the show:

And I stopped in to visit with a few friends in the antique tractor world too.
