I'm sure many of you know the The Pennsylvania Farm Show , it is now over 100 years old, and represents itself as the nation's largest indoor agricultural event, featuring 12,000 competitive exhibits, more than 5,200 of which are animal competitions, plus 300 commercial exhibitors. If you've ever been there, it is a great place to take an annual snapshot of the state of farming in the Commonwealth.

It is also a great place to look at new tractors. We drove through snow squalls, and trudged through ice, slush and snow (also a PA Farm Show tradition) I took my grandson where he made a concerted effort to sit on one of every color tractor in the exhibit hall.

Curiously, with all the tractors there, there was a very meager presentation of John Deere. So, on a rainy day yesterday, we stopped by the local dealer to climb on everything in their showroom - Twice:

Way to teach the young ones, Jere.
We have Empire Farm Days here in NY in late summer (I think) plus NY Farm Show in Syracuse at end of February.
Never been but will one of these days.

The picture of my Grandson and I sharing a famous PA Farmshow Milk shake has made it to the finals of a photo contest. If any of you are so inclined, and have a Facebook account, you could click our picture on the PA Farm Show FB page and like it for a vote to make us famous:

A fun day for you guys, Jere. Good that you are teaching him about tractors and outdoor things, rather than phones. I do the best I can with my grandson from 240 miles away.
