The New York Farm Show is February 21-23, 2019, at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse. It's a 300,000 sq.ft. show with 400+ exhibitors. All the big names are there along with many area dealers and manufacturers. Entry to the show is $5.00 and parking is free.

I'll be going out on Thursday, the 21st. Anyone else attending this show?

I can’t make, work Thursday and Friday and Saturday I already promised Emma I’d take her my aunt’s house to see her baby pygmy goats.

Thanks for the heads up.
I see Cazenovia Equipment for JD is in the Dairy bldg.
I will try to get there but no promises. Most of the exhibits don't hold much interest for me as I don't farm or have animals.
Can't go Thursday, we get our granddaughter for a while that day.
Have fun.

You really need to find a job. All of these shows will tire you out. At least, with a job, you can rest from time to time.

Have fun, Oxpath. We’ll get to go to the Farm Progress Show at the end of August in Decatur, IL.

I noticed the link above still has some 2018 information on it. The site has not been completely updated for 2019.

The show was okay, but nothing to write home about. I'd consider it a dairy oriented show as the dairy related exhibits seemed quite numerous compared to other farming. No surprise here. There are some large crop and orchard operations in the state, but dairy is still king.

About every item and service you would use on a dairy operation was represented. The common machinery brands were represented and there were a lot of farm organizations, insurance brokers, solar sales, cheap tool sales, banks, finance companies and that sort of booths. It's had the feel of a really big county fair, without the midway or shows.

The Deere exhibit displayed equipment from the three big dealers in the central / upstate New York region: Cazenovia Equipment, Land Pro Equipment (formerly Lakeland Equipment) and the Hudson River Tractor Company. The machines and staff from the three dealers were intermingled and though they had a nice exhibit, it wasn't anything you couldn't see at a well stocked dealer.

The crowds were small enough that you could have good, in-depth conversations with vendors or reps of products in which you had an interest and that is how we spent the majority of our time. Those one-on-one talks made the show worth the trip.

The bad part of the show is that it's in numerous buildings, the furthest being about 1/4 mile apart. I walked the exact same distance at this show as I did on a short day at the NFMS show in Kentucky, but the long walks in Syracuse were out in the wind and not indoors like Kentucky.

No photos as there wasn't anything special that I cared to get photos of.
