Kansas Coliseum-Sam Fulco Pavilion
Wichita Farm and Ranch Show organizers hope you reserve November 11, 12, and 13 to attend the 14th annual Farm Show. The show is again located at the Sam Fulco Pavilion located at the Kansas Coliseum. Doors open at 10:00 am daily with Tuesday nite's close at 6:00 pm, Wednesday nite's close at 8:00 pm and Thursday's wrap up at 4:00 pm.
Admission and Parking at the Wichita Farm Show are free! "We try to add some new events every year, to keep the show fresh and give the producers a reason to keep coming back each year," said Steve Guenthner, show manager.
Featured at this year's farm show are Toyota's new full size 2008 Tundra pickups. See the newest full size pickup to enter the farm and ranch market. Local producers will be receiving in the mail a personal invitation and a $1000.00 off coupon on the purchase price of the Tundra at the show.
Guenthner encourages everybody to call KFRM Radio 550 AM at 888-550-5376 to reserve his or her free sandwich supper ticket and a chair at the 2nd annual "Market Shoot-Out II" held opening day, Tuesday, Nov 11th. Do the markets have your head spinning? Unsure of how to maintain profitability for your farm or ranch these days? Who would have thought this year's market would be even more volatile than last years? Speaking of volatility, the market analysts for KFRM will return for the shoot-out and provide insight to these illogical markets. The "Wall Street" affect, fund money, and world production will all certainly be discussed in an entertaining and educational format that will place Pete Loewen, Tom Leffler, Chris Havercamp and Mark Gold in the KFRM Corral for the "Market Shoot-Out II".
Last year the pistols came out blazing leaving some with a ringing in their ears, if the markets have your ears ringing don't miss the marketing event of the year. The sandwich supper starts at 5:30 with the seminar at 6:00. Plan on spending two hours of the best in market training and at no charge!
Are you looking to upgrade your current livestock handling facilities? Are your facilities in good shape; are they safe for your operators? These two questions can be answered by attending the daily squeeze chute and handling equipment demos at the show. KFTI AM 1070 will sponsor the cattle squeeze chute demos each day; Tuesday Noon & 3:00 PM, Wednesday 1:30 PM & 5:00 PM, and Thursday Noon. See seven different chutes in operation processing cattle at each demo. Becky Rus, Livestock Concepts will supply the medications plus give advice on correct shot procedures. Behlen Country is furnishing the crowding tub & panels to correctly handle the cattle during the three days of cattle demos. Central City Scale will have their scale on hand recording weights. Tim Fuller, regional rodeo announcer, will mc the squeeze chutes demonstrations and offer his comments on the livestock industry.
