We are back! Husker Harvest Days is ready to welcome visitors Sept. 14-16 to Grand Island, Neb. With so few days and so many sights to see, just how can you prioritize your time? Well, alphabetically.

COVID-19 canceled many in-person farm shows last year, including Husker Harvest Days. But we reached back and found a few of our favorites vendors and attractions that will be back with us in 2021.

“If you think about it, many farmers haven’t seen the new equipment and products in person in two years,” says Matt Jungmann, Farm Progress national show director. “So, while there will be new products between now and Sept. 14 when the show starts, we will also have everything that’s been new since 2019.”

Take a look through this slideshow to see what you can expect from Husker Harvest Days 2021.

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.
