Field demonstration locations announced for Husker Harvest Days.

What sets Husker Harvest Days apart from all other farm show? A total of 340 acres of field demonstrations.

You can see a new combine, grain cart or tillage tool at work right in an actual cornfield. Then you compare your favorite side-by-side to its competitors.

The field demonstrations at Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 14-16, in Grand Island, Neb., offer visitors the chance to get in the fields to check out the machines and look at the results. Feel free to walk through the corn residue. Pick up the dirt after tillage tools. But it is not just for row crops.

Head over to the hay equipment demonstrations and watch the mowers and rakes. Pick up the alfalfa and inspect the stems for leaves before they bale it. Then check out the big round balers in action.

The field demonstrations are a popular attraction, with thousands of visitors standing in the fields, behind the string line, watching machines work. The map below offers you a chance to know where the demonstrations will take place each day.
