McCook Farm & Ranch Expo planned Nov. 17-18

Entertainment to the MAX will be trick toping both days of the show in McCook, Neb.

McCook, Neb. – With record crop yields the last two years in southwest Nebraska, northwest Kansas, and northeast Colorado, the McCook Farm & Ranch Expo is the place to be. The Expo will return to the Red Willow County Fairgrounds on Nov. 17-18, 2010.

The show opens at 9 a.m. both days and closes at 7 p.m. the first day and 4 p.m. the second. Admission and parking are free.

To kick things off, there will be a free producer’s breakfast at 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 17th. Come join us for some great food and friendly faces.

“It’s a great place to come see the newest and latest in farming and ranching practices and technology,” said Darren Dale, show manager. “We are expecting 350 vendors from 20 states, Canada and Australia.”

Exhibitors include displays for farm and ranch equipment, seed and chemicals, agricultural services, irrigation manufacturers, financial providers, commodity organizations, colleges, governmental services, home services, furniture and art galleries and much, much more.

This year the McCook Farm & Ranch Expo will feature live cattle handling demonstrations by Dr. Tom Noffsinger DVM on Wednesday. The cattle handling presentation will include applications of Low Stress Handling Concepts as a dimension of management that enables caregivers to have positive effects on cattle health and performance. Our goal will be to encourage caregivers to understand more about cattle in order to apply handling concepts during calving, new cattle acclimation, processing, pen riding and sick cattle management.
