Farm Show shares agriculture’s story
To the editor:
As co-chairs of this year’s Farm-City Hub Club Farm Show, we’re pleased that we still live in a strong agricultural community. That was evidenced by the number of people who stepped forward to take part in the recently completed New Ulm Farm- City Hub Club Farm Show.
As usual, we filled the arena of the Civic Center with a wide range of products and services relating to agriculture, and to the people that stand behind ag. We appreciate the effort put forth by the exhibitors to bring their products and equipment to the show. For many, that meant traveling long distances over treacherous roads Friday morning.
Although those same bad roads cut attendance on the opening afternoon, attendance picked up Friday evening and was very good Saturday. Show visitors had the chance to check out the latest trends in ag products and services?from large equipment to welding tables, from seeds to fertilizer, from banking to government services, from drainage to building demolition, and much more. Home and personal products were also featured.
For those seeking information on specialized topics, a series ofag-related seminars were offered by experts in the field.
The show would not have been possible without the hard work of dozens of Hub Club members who worked hard to prepare the arena; man the show office, safety booth, and food stand; and tear down after the show.
All-in-all, it took the cooperation and hard work of exhibitors, seminar speakers, club members, and the public to make the Hub Club’s 33rd annual show another success.
The show was another example of agriculture being a driving force – and a very important factor – in our community,
If you missed this year’s show, you might want to put next year’s dates on your 2015 calendar – March 6 and 7.
