It will bring an additional 22,000 square feet of show space to this year’s expo. The Alice building was built and paid for by the most generous man we have ever known, Tom Kiplinger, and his generosity saw no bounds. The Alice Kiplinger building was donated to the Red Willow County Fairgrounds. Please take this opportunity to come enjoy this new recently added on to facility. We will forever be grateful to Tom and we miss him dearly.

The McCook Farm & Ranch Expo is a great place to come see the newest and latest in farming and ranching technology practices,” said Darren Dale, show owner. “We are expecting over 400 vendors from 20 States, Canada and Australia. The McCook Farm & Ranch Expo is the place to find all your livestock and farming needs. And, if you’re in the market for new Fenoglio Boots or an American Cowboy hat, the expo is the place to be.” Exhibitors include numerous cutting edge 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 more.
