The nation’s largest outdoor farm event, the show hosts more than 600 exhibitors displaying new farm equipment, tractors, combines and farm implements; seed and crop protection products; and many additional farm supplies and services.

Producers from the United States and around the world attend. Ag manufacturers and suppliers from across the country and around the world are exhibitors. Field demonstrations are a show mainstay. Field demos include side-by-side tillage techniques, GPS and precision equipment, and tractor and combine performance comparisons, when weather allows. Livestock area includes horse training demonstrations and the newest equipment and animal health products. Additionally, the show features restored antique machinery and entertainment.
