The largest indoor farm show in America is about to begin. More than 300,000 visitors are expected at this year's show, which begins tomorrow, Feb. 15, and runs through Saturday, Feb. 18. Twenty-seven acres of indoor exhibit space will be chock-full of 850 exhibitors.

One highlight to look forward to this week is the Championship Tractor Pull, which will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. inside Broadbent Arena each day of the show. Those who attend this competitive event have the opportunity to walk beside the trucks and tractors and meet the drivers by visiting The Pit. Tickets for the Pull are on sale outside Freedom Hall at the administration offices.

Seminar topics throughout the show include smart grain handling, trends in new equipment values, new 4-wd tractors, volatility and risk management, and new telemetry products.

The Family Living Center, located in the East Hall, offers a break from the exhibits with plenty of unique gifts, antiques, collectibles and more.
