While the fall farm shows may not be that far behind, it's time to look ahead to the New York Farm Show, a significant event for Northeastern farmers. But what can you find when you're there? Chris Torres, American Agriculturist, offers a preview discussing the event and what it offers visitors.

The show is entering its 38th year and comes off a postponement from 2021. Farmers that attend this show are looking for new tools and ideas, and it represents a significant stop for dairy producers seeking new ways to boost returns. Torres fills listeners in on the program.

Then there's a discussion about the new Roxor utility vehicle, which after a 2019 launch hit a speedbump when lawyers from Jeep claimed the rugged machine looked a little too similar to on-road vehicles. Roxor and its engineers went back to the drawing board, but they didn't use a clean sheet design, instead they took a different approach. Rich Ansell, vice president of marketing, Roxor shares that backstory and what the finished product offers.

Give it a listen.
