Last weekend the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Missouri was the place to be for area agricultural producers.

Wonderful fall weather welcomed 47,000 visitors to the Ozark Fall Farmfest which has become an annual event for friends and families alike.

Like an agricultural shopping mall Farmfest featured over 750 commercial exhibits as well as a large number of livestock exhibits.

This year’s Farmfest was the 30th edition and proved to be as big or bigger than ever before.

Farm Talk Newspaper, co-sponsor of the event featured a $1,000 shopping spree drawing at their booths.

The winner of this year’s Shopping Spree was John Lysinger from Lowry City, Mo.

In addition to the $1,000 Shopping Spree, a children’s drawing was also held.

The winner of the children’s drawing was Annie Swaters from Deepwater, Mo.
