Tulsa Farm Show Promises Something for Everyone

Oklahoma's largest indoor farm show is just days away. The 21st annual Tulsa Farm Show will be held December 11th - 13th. More than 350 exhibitors will be on display at the River Spirit Expo, one of the largest exhibit halls in the country featuring over 400,000 square feet of exhibit space. Show Manager Ron Bormaster is excited about this growing event.

"This will be the largest Tulsa Farm Show in its 21-year history and we are excited to offer new events and many new exhibitors at the River Spirit Expo," Bormaster said. "It is truly a great salute to the area's agricultural and ranching community."

The Tulsa Farm Show will feature demonstrations, competitions, test drives and numerous prize drawings. This year's show will feature many demonstrations on horsemanship, trick riding, livestock equipment and also a livestock handling skills competition. The annual event draws more than 30,000 farmers and ranchers to view the latest agricultural products, services and technology.

Cattle producers can see the latest equipment with side-by-side demonstrations. Eleven brands of cattle chutes will be demonstrated with live animals and moderated by experienced representatives. Equipment demonstrations will be offered at 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. on Thursday and Saturday and at 11:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. on Friday. Cattle will also be on display for the Oklahoma Simmental/Simbrah Association Private Treaty Bull Sale in the east exhibit area.   

High school students from across the country will compete in the Livestock Skills Scholarship competition. The three-person teams will be evaluated on their cattle-handling skills. The winning team members will receive scholarships and prizes.    The competion will take place on Friday at 8 a.m. with the awards presented at approximately 11 a.m. on the west end of the River Spirit Expo. A scholarship benefit auction will be held after the awards ceremony.
