The Ozarks Fall Farm Fest was held this past weekend on October 4-6, 2013. FarmFest is an annual event that is held at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Missouri. This event offers a variety of farm related objects from livestock and trailers to tractors and balers. There are many outdoor and indoor exhibits there to view as well.
One of the main exhibits is the livestock that breeders bring in to be sold or are just on display to be used as advertisement. There were many livestock species there including horses, cattle, goats, sheep, rabbits, dogs, and swine. Another main focus point for many was the variety of tractors and farm equipment. There were many brands available to view from John Deere to Kubota. Along with this there were automatic waterers, tools, trucks, truck beds, trailers, chutes, gates and panels. Indoors there were also many venders that were advertising anything from animal health products, fencing products, western wear, feed, and much more. If it is related to agriculture more than likely it was there.
I personally had a booth set up trying to sell some goats, western tack, and swine feed additives. It was nice to meet with people and get to know other breeders in the industry. However, it was a cold two days there was a good turn out each day. If you have never been to FarmFest and are interested in agriculture I highly suggest you check it out next year. I enjoy going each year. It helps me keep up with the latest trends and find out what may be new in the agriculture sector. There is a great variety of agriculture items and it is a lot of fun to see.
