Another year, another successful show at the Ozark Fall Farmfest

Parsons, Kansas — Last weekend’s cool fall weather wasn’t enough to keep in excess of 40,000 visitors away from the recent Ozark Fall Farmfest in Springfield, Missouri.

The show was once again considered a success thanks to the ongoing support from everyone in attendance. That support is what continues to make the Ozark Fall Farmfest the largest agricultural trade show in the area.

This year’s show featured more than 750 booths, both inside and out, offering something for everyone.

Farmfest continues to be an annual event for families featuring everything from agricultural exhibits, commercial exhibits, rural living exhibits and livestock exhibits.

Keeping up with tradition Farm Talk once again gave away a $1,000 Shopping Spree to one lucky winner at the Ozark Fall Farmfest.

This year’s winner of the Shopping Spree was Robert Gladden from Lebanon, Mo.

Gladden will be able to spend that $1,000 to purchase something from one of the many exhibitors who exhibited at this year’s Farmfest.

Farm Talk also features a children’s drawing each year.

This year’s winner of the children’s drawing was Riley Bracht from Rocky Comfort, Mo.

As one show ends, Farm Talk is quickly back to work on not only providing the most current agricultural news to subscribers but also preparing for the 2014 lineup of shows.

Farm Talk’s next show will be Horsefest which is scheduled for March 21-23. The 2014 Four State Farm Show, which will be in Pittsburg, Kansas, is set for July 18-20 and the 2014 Ozark Fall Farmfest will be held October 3-5.£

    K-State Agronomy Specialist Doug Shoup and Wildcat Extension District agents Josh Coltrain and Keith Martin were out in fields late last week surveying the situation.

    Long-range weather forecasters expect an El Niño return sometime this year but its timing and strength are still beyond the reach of reliable predictability.
    Odds for an El Niño occurrence increase as temperatures warm in the Pacific. Above-average sea surface temperatures are currently being measured over much of the eastern tropical Pacific.

    Going to grass is always an exciting time, but getting ready for it is lots of hard work that involves far more than opening a gate.
    And most of it happens well ahead of green-up.
