John Deere at the 2012 National Farm Machinery Show

National Farm Machinery Show

Each year the National Farm Machinery Show attracts thousands of people interested in viewing the latest and greatest farming equipment to the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. This year was no different. Despite a continually-challenging agriculture and economic climate, last week’s four day show welcomed over 305,000 people, making it the third highest attendance ever in the show’s 47 year history.

While major machinery brands took up the largest chunks of floorspace, smaller booths displaying everything from boots to baskets made sure no area was left empty. The near record-breaking crowd, and sheer size of the show, made it virtually impossible to see everything available. We were sure to spend ample time in the one area that we know you care about most: John Deere.

Later this week, the 47th National Farm Machinery Show and Championship Tractor Pull will begin at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.  The four day event always draws large crowds from across the country, with last year’s attendance reaching just over 300,000 people.  More than 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space will be used at the show to display and demonstrate the latest technological advancements and products from more than 850 exhibitors.  Just as we were at the 2011 show, we’ll be at this year’s show providing updates to those of you who can’t make it.
