One of the Midwest's largest indoor farm events, the 45th annual Triumph of Agriculture Expo, will be held March 9 and 10, 2011 at the Qwest Center in downtown Omaha, Neb. "Mark your calendar now," says Bob Mancuso, spokesman for the event. "This show will once again be filled with the latest ag innovations, farm equipment and supplies with more than 900 exhibits for farmers, ranchers and their wives to visit. It's all on one level with over 200,000 square feet in the convenient and easy to get to Qwest Center."
"This is an excellent opportunity to see all types of short-Line farm equipment, new products, labor and time saving ideas all under one roof," says Mancuso. "The Triumph of Ag Expo is the best place for farmers to find answers for what they do control while taking advantage of the new technologies at the Expo - ranging from machinery to new plant varieties that are available."
The farm show is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday. Advance free admission tickets can be obtained from exhibitors, county Extension agents, farm machinery and equipment dealers or at the Qwest Center door. "This is an ideal time for area farmers to find ways to improve productivity and increase profits, before spring field work begins," he says.
Show has something of interest for every farm operation
John Fonda, president of John Day Company and show co-chairman from Omaha is looking for a great expo. "The Triumph of Ag Expo is always packed with lots of new improvements and helpful information. At no other time this spring will area farmers be able to see this much farm equipment and technology on display. The Triumph of Ag Expo offers visitors a hands-on experience with continuous demonstrations so those attending will be able to compare and evaluate quickly and conveniently, all under one roof, in one location and on one level with over 4,500 on-site parking spots available."
Regarded as one of the largest indoor diversified short-line farm machinery shows, Terry Twiestmeyer, president of Twiestmeyer & Associates and also a show co-chairman says, "The Expo has something for every kind of farm operation," including tillage equipment, planters, monitor and control systems, soil testing equipment, mowers, cattle chutes, augers, fertilizers, various seed hybrids, feeders, tanks and pumps, hay moving and handling equipment, plows, combines, computers and software, tractors, and many more agricultural products and services for today's farmers and ranchers."
