Over 370 Farm Vendors Flock to Oklahoma Next Month to Salute Agriculture at the Tulsa Farm Show

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 12:32:26 CST

Over 370 Farm Vendors Flock to Oklahoma Next Month to Salute Agriculture at the Tulsa Farm Show Tulsa is set to once-again to host Oklahoma’s largest indoor farm show December 7, 8, & 9. The annual event will bring area farmers and ranchers to the River Spirit Expo to view the latest in agricultural & ranching technology. More than 370 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 of its kind under one roof.


More than 30,000 Attendees Over Three Days


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. Over 30,000 agricultural producers and ranchers from Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas regularly make the Tulsa Farm Show part of their end-of-year activities.


World-Class Facility


Tulsa’s marquee expo center, the River Spirit Expo, provides one of the largest and most versatile exhibit halls in the country, with over 400,000 square feet of exhibit space. 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. Attendees enjoy free on-site parking in addition to free admission to the show. 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, many events, including demonstrations, competitions, test drives, performances, and prize drawings are popular attractions at the show. Craig Cameron, renowned natural horse trainer, and host of RFD-TV’s Ride Smart television series will provide daily horsemanship seminars and interact with attendees throughout the show at the W-W Livestock Systems exhibit. Craig’s entertaining and interactive demonstrations have been a Tulsa Farm Show favorite for the past 22 years.


Show Manager, Ron Bormaster commented, “We will have more 370 exhibitors and a full schedule of events and performances each day of the show. We expect this to be the biggest and best Tulsa Farm Show in its 24 year history. It is a great salute to the area’s agricultural and ranching community.”

Livestock management is also a key focus of the show and cattle producers interested in the latest equipment can see the new products put to the test in side-by-side demonstrations. More than ten brands of cattle chutes will be demonstrated with live animals and moderated by experienced livestock industry experts.


High school students from across the state will compete in the finals of the Livestock Skills Scholarship Competition. Ten three-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 key support from American Farmers & Ranchers, has awarded over $100,000 in agricultural scholarships to Oklahoma high school students. A fund raising auction will be hosted following the competition to raise funds for the program.


Prize drawings are also popular at the Tulsa Farm Show. Spartan Mowers will also be offering test drives of its zero turn mowers and the chance to win a new Spartan mower to be given away to one lucky test drive participant. Country singer, Rusty Rierson, will be performing daily acoustic music sets each day of the Show. Set times will be posted on-site and on TulsaFarmShow.com and the Tulsa Farm Show Facebook page.


The TULSA Farm Show runs December 7, 8, & 9, 2017 at the River Spirit Expo (located at the Tulsa State Fairgrounds). Admission and parking are free. For more information, and to view an interactive floor plan of the show, go to www.TulsaFarmShow.com.
