The Western Farm Show returns to the American Royal Complex in Kansas City, Mo., Friday through Sunday, Feb. 24-26, 2017, offering expansive displays of new equipment along with a vast array of other products and services for farmers and ranchers.
The popular event (one of the largest indoor farm shows in the Midwest) features hundreds of exhibitors, acres of things to see and do, and the latest in farm and ranch technology and more. In addition to the newest farm equipment, visitors will again have the opportunity to browse crop production and livestock products, farm structures and numerous ag services, including booths from MFA Incorporated.
Highlights of the 2017 Western Farm Show, now in its 56th season, will include:
Tractor pull discontinued
Note: One change for 2017 is that the Western Farm Show will not be hosting the Championship Tractor Pull, with Doug Roberts and the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Association, at Kemper Arena adjacent to the American Royal. Earlier this year, the city approved plans for the redevelopment of the arena into a venue for amateur youth and adult sports, making the space unavailable for the tractor pull. But that will not affect other Western Farm Show activities held in the American Royal building.
The Western Farm Show is produced and managed by Western Equipment Dealers Association, a trade group representing approximately 2,400 farm, industrial and outdoor power equipment dealers in the U.S. and Canada. Show hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Adult admission is $8 and free for children 12 and under.

Returning to lead the livestock sessions, for the SIXTH year, is Dr. Ron Gill, Texas AgriLife Extension Specialist. Dr. Gill has been providing technical expertise to livestock producers in beef cattle nutrition, management and livestock handling techniques for over 21 years.
