Ag Shows

You won’t know.

Not until you go.

How farmers get

so excited for the

annual ag show.

 

Parking pickups like

they are super B’s.

Tractors, grains,

inputs and things.

Freebies and eats

farmers love treats.

 

New combines so big,

cost as much as a house.

A big house. Really.

Tractors, sprayers,

seeders, tanks and trucks.

Gadgets and weirdness.

 

Farm shows are

the way farmers

have fun in the winter

when they aren’t

curling and planning.

 

Farmers are a

funny bunch.

Get a whole herd

offer them free lunch.

Wanna get them

out in droves?

Give ’em hats!

 

I love my farmer.

I do, he is dear.

But to get him

really excited

you need a good

farm show!
