The weather was cold and snowy in Syracuse, but there were plenty of hot items to check out at this year’s New York Farm Show.

John Deere brought its new 8RX-370 tracked tractor, New Holland brought its new line of Workmaster utility tractors and Empire Drone Co. brought some new spraying drones to the show.

The show also featured dairy robotics, high-clearance sprayers and many other things farmers need on the farm.

Check out our slideshow from the three-day show, held each year in Syracuse at the New York State Fairgrounds.

About the Author(s)

Chris Torres

Editor, American Agriculturist

Chris Torres, editor of American Agriculturist, previously worked at Lancaster Farming, where he started in 2006 as a staff writer and later became regional editor. Torres is a seven-time winner of the Keystone Press Awards, handed out by the Pennsylvania Press Association, and he is a Pennsylvania State University graduate.

Torres says he wants American Agriculturist to be farmers' "go-to product, continuing the legacy and high standard (former American Agriculturist editor) John Vogel has set." Torres succeeds Vogel, who retired after 47 years with Farm Progress and its related publications.

"The news business is a challenging job," Torres says. "It makes you think outside your small box, and you have to formulate what the reader wants to see from the overall product. It's rewarding to see a nice product in the end."

Torres' family is based in Lebanon County, Pa. His wife grew up on a small farm in Berks County, Pa., where they raised corn, soybeans, feeder cattle and more. Torres and his wife are parents to three young boys.
