Colorado Farm Show set for Jan. 29-31 in Greeley
Colorado Farm Show
The tent is gone. The waiting list of exhibitors is gone. What’s new at the Colorado Farm Show this year is 50 percent more space created by the new Community Building at Greeley’s Island Grove Regional Park. Many long-time exhibitors of farm equipment and services have doubled their booth space, and the Farm Show has added almost 75 new exhibits.
The 38th annual Colorado Farm Show, one of the biggest agricultural trade shows in the West, will take place Jan. 29-31 at Island Grove Regional Park in Greeley. The U.S. Deputy Secretary of Agriculture, Jim Moseley, will open the 2002 Colorado Farm Show with a welcome address in the new Community Building at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
The farm show brings together nationally recognized farm and dairy experts, and almost 26,000 farmers, stockmen, dairymen, and other men and women interested in agriculture for three days of free educational programs and more than 350 farm-related exhibits. The show opens at 9 a.m. daily and closes at 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and at 4 p.m. Thursday.
Colorado Farm Show follows the National Western Stock Show for the convenience of exhibitors who attend both. Surveys have revealed the Colorado Farm Show to be one of the most productive shows that exhibitors attend during the year.
This year’s Farm Show chairman, Curt Probert said, “Almost 100 people volunteered to plan and manage this year’s show.” It is a not-for-profit event and any excess revenue is used to improve or expand the exhibition facilities. Also four $500 college scholarships are given annually to Colorado high school seniors who plan an agricultural career.
