It's called the "Grand Daddy " of farm shows and beginning Tuesday the Colusa Farm Show kicks off for its 48th annual event.
Staff at the Colusa County Fairgrounds is in full gear readying the site for the 48th annual Colusa Farm Show, the oldest such gathering in the Western United States. The three-day event attracts farmers, ranchers, agricultural-based businesses, landscape professionals, and more to view more than 300 exhibits and demonstrations of the latest state-of-the art equipment, and to attend educational seminars. The show, which has often been referred to as "The Grandaddy of Farm Shows," will convene on February 5th and run through February 7th.
Originating in 1966, the show was originally touted as the Sacramento Valley Orchard Machinery Fair. The Colusa Farm Show has now evolved into an exhibition showcasing products and services for all aspects of agriculture.
"A show of this caliber is increasingly important as a resource for the latest information on government regulations, risk management, water management, etc., in addition to the opportunity to view, compare, and purchase equipment, tools and services," said Susan Clark.
Admission and parking is free. The show is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. all three days.
