There is free admission for the show and only a $5.00 charge for parking. The San Antonio International Farm and Ranch Show is “Where Agriculture Meets American Innovation and Texas Heritage”. The event is sponsored in part by the Texas Department of Agriculture and their marketing group, Go Texan, Texas A & M AgriLife Extension and Bexar County Community Arenas. There are corporate sponsors or the show as well, including: Walmart, Chevrolet, Texas Corn Producers, Holt Agribusiness and Alexander Livestock Equipment.
The San Antonio International Farm and Ranch Show will have hundreds of exhibitors displaying farm and ranch equipment, chemicals, safety equipment and technology in the 170,000 foot indoor exhibition hall. The trade show runs both days from 9am to 7pm. There will be a live cattle handling equipment demonstration, where the best manual and hydraulic chutes are showcased. There is also a wine tasting and food pairing event on Friday, November 8th starting at 6pm.
One of the great advantages of this show is that free C.E.U (continuing education units) will be available to farmers and ranchers who attend the seminars conducted by Texas AgriLife Extension Service. This organization helps to improve the lives of people, businesses and communities across Texas through relevant education. The programs are custom designed for different areas of the state and different ranching and farming techniques. The seminars will be on such topics as winter forage, animal husbandry, irrigation, livestock production, laws and regulations, and precision agriculture. There are also clinics for FFA (Future Farmers of America) and 4-H members on November 9th.
On Saturday, November 9th, the show is home to the Texas Tractor Pulling Extravaganza sponsored by the Texas Tractor Pulling Association. This is the state Pro-Stock championship finale. There is a $10 charge for this event.
