Thousands Attending NE Power Farming Show

Thousands of people from across the region have swarmed the state's capital for the 2013 Nebraska Power Farming Show, where they're gawking at big iron and futuristic gadgets from the top agricultural companies in the world. The three-day show wraps up today.

Growers and ranchers from states like Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Kansas are rubbing shoulders with those from Nebraska at the Lancaster Event Center as they flow between the booths of the 1,000-plus ag-related exhibitors who have been presenting at the nation's second largest indoor farm show.

"This event was designed to bring together the leading agricultural manufacturers and agribusiness technology companies in one location, and the list of exhibitors continues to get bigger and better each year," said show co-director Will Rogers. "Serious row crop farmers and ranchers looking to see the best and latest in farming and agriculture don't want to miss this year's Nebraska Power Farming Show."

"Not many cities in the region are well suited to host such a large event," said show co-director Tom Junge. "Many of our attendees travel good distances to attend the show, and they're happy to do so because of the great exhibits and year-end buying specials many of our exhibitors offer. But they also come because Lincoln is such a special city that has so much to offer visitors, particularly families. It's the perfect place for a farm show."
