Bringing together the region’s farming community and the services necessary for daily operations is the goal of the 8th Annual Western New York Farm Show. The exposition is sponsored by the Erie County Agricultural Society.
The Western New York Farm Show strives to educate farmers from around the region about the latest cutting-edge agricultural products and technology. Vendors include feed, seed, and equipment dealers, farm service providers, and non-for-profits that specialize in agriculture education, promotion, and advancement. Industry professionals will lead seminars daily covering a variety of topics.
Highlights of the 2018 show include an opportunity to earn spray credits during pesticide recertification classes and grain bin & confined space rescue simulator demonstrations. High School students will be able to show off their skills during the NAPA Auto Parts Mechanics Competition Friday, February 2nd. The 3rd Annual Farmer Elite Toss Hay Bale Throwing Competition will take place each day of the show at 2pm inside the Agriculture Discovery Center. A “pee wee” toss featuring competitors 12 and under will take place daily before the adult competition. A complete listing of events, demonstrations and seminars can be found at www.WNYFarmShow.com.
