New Farm Show Has First Run In State

June 29, 2012, 5:00 PM by Erich Schaffhauser

New Farm Show Has First Run In State
PIERRE, SD -

A newer format of farm show had a first run in the state. It combined the traditional component of vendors showing off their product with an education portion.

As some farmers and ranchers made their way through the hundreds of exhibits set up at the South Dakota AgXchange near Pierre, others attended sessions geared toward both crop and livestock producers.

"It's been very informative. The people have been very great to work with," farmer Kevin Deiter said.

Deiter farms near Faulkton. In addition to taking in seminars, he met with executives from companies whose products he either uses or could use in the future.

"It's been back and forth. They've been giving us information but they're also asking for information as customers of theirs, what they can do different. So I think it's learning for both parties," Deiter said.

Deiter enjoyed this format for a farm show and Dan Forgey, who farms and ranches near Gettysburg, enjoyed it as well.

"Tremendous amount of knowledge, a lot of interactive, a lot of talking,” Forgey said. “Everything I've been around so far has really been a plus."

Forgey helped the event's promoter with planning. With experts in agriculture flown in from around the country, he wants to see shows like this continue in the state.

"There's so much going on. It's going to be hard to squeeze it all in two days," Forgey said.

And he's hoping for future years to fit information in as well.
