Farmfest 2012 brings thousands to the Ozark Empire Fair grounds

by Doug Toburen

Parsons, Kansas — Last weekends 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, once again, featured more than 750 booths, both inside and out, offering not only the latest in agricultural equipment, but so much more.

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 Tom Hutchens from Monett, Mo.

Hutchens 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 childrens drawing each year.

This year’s winner of the children’s drawing was Grace Roy from Mansfield, 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 their next show.

Farm Talk’s next show will be Horsefest which is scheduled for March 22-24. The 2013 Four State Farm Show, which will be in Pittsburg, Kansas, is set for July 19-21 and the 2013 Ozark Fall Farmfest will be held October 4-6.£
