See what’s new at the Western Farm Show
Escape the cold to get a first-hand look at new technologies and ideas
Forget winter for a few hours and think machinery, tools, technology, ideas and what the ag industry can do for your operation.
The 2014 Western Farm Show features over 500 exhibitors under one roof at the American Royal Complex in Kansas City.
The WFS is an excellent opportunity to put your hands on machinery and equipment and visit with representatives from machinery companies and multiple-line distributors like MFA Incorporated.
The WFS is also a great chance to listen and learn what experts predict for the coming year. This year, Kansas State’s Glynn Tonsor will give a presentation on trends and issues in the cattle industry.
Tonsor has broad interests and experiences which span issues throughout the meat supply chain. He will draw from his experience through both applied research and first-hand knowledge with livestock production to provide attendees an outlook for the coming months.
MFA, a major sponsor of the Western Farm Show, will have booths featuring precision agriculture equipment and services with plenty of expert staff on hand to answer questions.
MFA will again host Ronald Gill’s livestock handling demonstrations. The Texas AgriLife Extension specialist’s knowledge of cattle and safe handling practices is a favorite attraction and can help cattle operations of any size. MFA sponsors these NCBA’s Stockmanship and Stewardship Low-Stress Livestock Handling demonstrations by popular demand. The demonstrations are at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22, in the Scott Pavilion adjacent to the American Royal Complex.
MFA’s cattle handling systems and other MFA farm supply products will be featured at the show. MFA’s feed division will have a display representing its full line feed products with staff on hand to explain how the range of feeds can fit on various farming operations.
Don’t forget the tractor pull. The Championship Tractor Pull, with Doug Roberts and the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Association, is expected to draw some 125 drivers and vehicles from throughout the Midwest—with $56,000 in prize money at stake.
Competition is Friday and Saturday nights, Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 at Kemper Arena adjacent to the American Royal. A separate admission is required.
