Christy and I attended the 2016 National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville Ky yesterday (2/13/16).
Several folks commented last year that they wanted more pictures/video from the event. So, we did our best to capture what we saw on video. No promises on the quality, nor the accuracy of the commentary. Also, we didn't come close to capturing the entire show.
A few comments..
1. There were MANY MORE compact and sub-compact tractor manufacturers present this year than last year.
2. The John Deere booth was much larger than last year. It was 'back to normal" this year. Last year, there was a significant cutback in the size due to the farm economy.
3. Even with the sluggish and pessimistic farm economy, the crowd was a large as ever.
4. The show has continued to grow. It is now virtually impossible to see the entire show in one day.
If you ever have a chance, you should make the effort to attend this. I believe it is the largest indoor farm show in the country.
I divided the video into 3 segments. We captured most of the small tractors, but by late afternoon, we grew tired of them, so we did not video the Kioti and Branson brands. We might have missed a few other small equipment manufacturers as well since we simply did not have time to walk every isle.
The 3rd video will have close-ups of the tractor pulling tractors. It also has some herbicide demonstrations from Syngenta.
Here is the first video. The other two will be available tomorrow. I'll post them to this thread as well.
I hope you enjoy.
