TULSA Farm Show Kicks Off 20th Year!
October 1, 2013 – Tulsa, Oklahoma – Tulsa is set to once-again to host Oklahoma's largest indoor farm show December 12, 13, &14. The 20th Annual event will bring over 30,000 area farmers and ranchers to the newly-named River Spirit Expo to view the latest in agricultural & ranching technology. More than 325 exhibitors will feature over 1000 agricultural products and services, making the Tulsa Farm Show one of the country's premier agricultural events, and the largest show if it's kind under one roof.
Serving the Five-State Area
Long since known for its wheat and cattle production, Oklahoma has over 35 million acres of farmland managed by more than 86 thousand farms. Tulsa's location in the eastern part of the state allows it to effectively play host to farmers and ranchers beyond Oklahoma's borders. Agricultural producers and ranchers from Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas regularly make the Tulsa Farm Show part of their end-of-year activities.
Tulsa's marquee expo center, the River Spirit Expo, provides one of the largest and most versatile exhibit halls in the Nation, with over 400,000 square feet of space. Billed as one of the largest clear-span buildings in the world, it is well-suited for big equipment and large exhibits and provides easy access for exhibitors and attendees alike. The River Spirit Expo is part of Tulsa's Expo Square, one of the premier event complexes in the country and annual host of the Tulsa State Fair.
Great Events at the Show
In addition to exhibits, demonstrations as well as competitions, test drives, and prize drawings are a key draw at free show. Events and competitions include horsemanship demonstrations, cattle equipment demonstrations, and the annual livestock handling skills scholarship competition.
Craig Cameron, renowned natural horse trainer, and host of RFD-TV's Ride Smart television series will provide daily horsemanship seminars and also interact with attendees throughout the show at the SUTHERLANDS exhibit. Craig's entertaining and interactive demonstrations have been a Tulsa Farm Show favorite for the past 17years.
Livestock management is also key focus of the show, and cattle producers interested in the latest in equipment can check out the latest products put to the test in side-by-side demonstrations. Eleven brands of cattle chutes will be demonstrated with live animals and moderated by experienced representatives. Ag Safety Forums will be offered daily in the Oklahoma Farm Bureau exhibit.
High school students from across the state will compete in the finals of the Livestock Skills Scholarship Competition. Ten 3-person teams will compete in practical, real-life cattle handling scenarios and the winning team members will win scholarship dollars and prizes. To date, Midwest Shows Scholarship Program, with support from American Farmers & Ranchers, has awarded nearly $100,000 in scholarships to Oklahoma high school students interested in furthering their agricultural education. An auction will be hosted following the competition to raise additional funds for the program.
Prize drawings are popular at the Tulsa Farm Show. Attendees can enter the daily $1000 Showbucks drawing at the GoBob Pipe & Steel exhibit. Hustler Turf will also be offering test drives of its Zero Turn mowers and the chance to win a new Hustler RAPTOR mower.
Show Manager, Ron Bormaster commented, "The River Spirit Expo will be jammed with exhibits and activities, making the 20th Annual Tulsa Farm Show the best show yet and a salute to the area's agricultural and ranching economy."
The TULSA Farm Show runs December 12, 13, & 14, 2013 at the River Spirit Expo (Expo Square) in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Admission and parking are free. For more information and interactive floor plan of the show, go to www.TulsaFarmShow.com or contact Ron Bormaster at (507) 437-7969.
