There is so much to see at any farm show, and Husker Harvest Days 2022 did not disappoint. From equipment to software technology, there was something for every farmer and farm operation.

Four Farm Progress editors and one Husker Harvest Days intern spent three days walking the streets and talking to vendors at this year’s show near Grand Island, Neb. They came away with a few of their own wish list products from this year’s show and are sharing them with you.

The team uncovered nearly 80 new products or services from the show. Many were from the more than 60 first-time vendors at the show. You will find pictures and descriptions of these new products grouped into categories and appearing soon on Farm Progress websites. Two new stories with multiple new products will appear on the websites each week throughout November and December. Products which another team of Farm Progress editors uncovered at the Farm Progress Show in Iowa will also be included.

The Farm Progress new products team editors for 2022 Husker Harvest Days included Sarah McNaughton, editor, Dakota Farmer; Kevin Schulz, senior staff writer, Nebraska Farmer and Dakota Farmer; Mindy Ward, editor, Missouri Ruralist; Jennifer M. Latzke, editor, Kansas Farmer; and Elizabeth Hodges, intern, Husker Harvest Days.

While many products are fascinating, four of our new products team members each picked a new product which stood out to them.

About the Author(s)

Mindy Ward

Editor, Missouri Ruralist

Mindy resides on a small farm just outside of Holstein, Mo, about 80 miles southwest of St. Louis.

After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural journalism, she worked briefly at a public relations firm in Kansas City. Her husband’s career led the couple north to Minnesota.

There, she reported on large-scale production of corn, soybeans, sugar beets, and dairy, as well as, biofuels for The Land. After 10 years, the couple returned to Missouri and she began covering agriculture in the Show-Me State.

“In all my 15 years of writing about agriculture, I have found some of the most progressive thinkers are farmers,” she says. “They are constantly searching for ways to do more with less, improve their land and leave their legacy to the next generation.”

Mindy and her husband, Stacy, together with their daughters, Elisa and Cassidy, operate Showtime Farms in southern Warren County. The family spends a great deal of time caring for and showing Dorset, Oxford and crossbred sheep.
