Welcome to the Show!

The Western Farm Show was this weekend in Kansas City, Missouri.  Did you attend?  Or did the snow, ice and/or cold keep you home?

Snow 01

It was beginning to look like we were not going to be able to attend either.  The snow came in on Thursday and lasted most of the day blanketing us in a lot of snow.  Seth started blading that night because he was due to the Farm Show early Friday morning.  Gpa finished up on Friday and even bladed in the pasture so that he could unroll hay for the cows.  This makes it easier for the cows to eat and gives them a place to lay down so that they are not right on top of the snow.

With Seth gone and school cancelled, the kids and I hung out, played in the snowed and hoped that the roads would be cleared so that we would be able to keep all of our weekend plans.  We were able to make it to the bull sale on Saturday, so that meant that we would then make it to the Western Farm Show.

The kids and I have never attended.  I know, I can not believe it either!  Seth has been the past four years for work, but it just never worked out for the rest of us.

The kids were not for sure what to expect, but I think they enjoyed the day.  A highlight was the escalator.  Yes, it really was.  Apparently I need to get the kids to a mall/convention center more often.

We did stop in and see how the guys were doing at the Burrus Hybrids booth.  Saturday was a very, very busy day for them and the show in general.  Sunday was slower, but still a good day.  Many of the Missouri customers were in attendance and know to look for the guys and the popcorn that they hand out.

If you were able to get to the Western Farm Show, what was the highlight for you?

Blessings to you,

    I LOVE the Farm Show!! I didn’t get to go this year but have been 2 or 3 times with a friend and FFA and I love it!! Looking at the new equipment and livestock stuff is my favorite part. Always gives you some new ideas. Plus last year we had some past FFA state officers talk with us about how we could be better Agvocates and it really was interesting listening to them talk! I’m glad you guys enjoyed your trip!

  2. Just being in the building brought back memories of being there for the American Royal. Never showed there, but as a family we would go every year and take in a rodeo and see all of the livestock. I enjoyed all of the equipment too. Especially the types you don’t usually get to see, like what the loggers use. Hope you have a great day Erin!
