The end of the year is drawing near and so is the end of the farm and ranch show season. AKE Safety Equipment will be attending two more shows to finish up 2013. The first show is the Nebraska Power Farming Show at the Lancaster Events Center at 4100 North 84th Street in Lincoln, Nebraska. The second show is the Indiana/Illinois Farm Show, which you will hear more about next week. The Nebraska Power Farming Show has free parking and free admission throughout the event.
The Nebraska Power Farming Show is the 2nd largest indoor farm show in North America. There are 5 buildings on the ground that will have vendors, displays, hands-on exhibits, and classrooms for seminars. There are over 900 vendors and 2,250 booths at the show. The vendors represent businesses and organizations in 23 states and 4 Canadian provinces. The show runs 9am to 4pm on December 10th and 11th and 9am to 3pm on December 12th. Farmers and ranchers from around the Midwest attend the show. Show attendees can see and touch the best new agriculture products and technologies as well as speak to experts and vendors about the latest trends and innovations in farming and agriculture. AKE Safety Equipment will be at Booth 2201 in Pavilion 2 for the show. AKE Safety Equipment will have representatives spotlighting STOP-FYRETM, “The World’s BEST Fire ExtinguisherTM!”
There will be seminars and specials targeted especially for the farming community. The seminars are sponsored in part by the University of Nebraska Extension Services. You will be able to earn CEU (Continuing Education Units) for the seminars. The show focuses on the latest information and equipment for row crops, hay/forage, irrigation, grain storage and handling, seed handling, livestock equipment and supplies, seeds, fertilizers and chemicals.
The show is produced by the Iowa Nebraska Equipment Dealers Association. The organization has been in existence since 1893 and is a trade association for agriculture, outdoor power, and industrial equipment dealers in Iowa and Nebraska. The Nebraska Power Farming Show started in 2007 and has steadily grown in attendance and vendor appearance ever since. For more up-to-date information on the show, check out their Facebook page.
AKE Safety Equipment is looking forward to speaking with attendees of the show about farm fire safety and the importance of having a fire extinguisher in your tractor and throughout your barns and home. See you at the show!
