Amarillo Farm & Ranch Show begins on Tuesday

Farm and ranch management is hard, time-consuming work. Farm shows provide places for farmers and ranchers to gather, network with local dealers, research large purchases, and attend seminars to learn actionable tips to help grow the farm operation. For 34 years, the Amarillo Farm and Ranch Show has provided these business-building opportunities to the Texas panhandle.

This, the 35th year, brings attendees over 400 exhibitors showcasing products needed for farm and ranch management. Products and services fall across a large range of categories including cattle feeding equipment, livestock equipment, livestock husbandry, manure handling equipment, the newest, high-tech machinery and so much more.

New at the show this year is a free, half-day cotton education event presented by IDEAg and High Plains Journal. The Cotton U educational event takes place Thursday, Dec. 5, and features speakers, farmer panels and opportunities to earn CEU credits.

Hemp is a hot topic in Texas and the Amarillo Farm & Ranch Show has a speaker series scheduled on Tuesday, Dec 3 and Wednesday, Dec 4, committed to presenting important hemp information and answering visitors’ questions.

Tuesday, Dec. 3, attend the Farm and Ranch Management Symposium presented by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. They will be presenting an all-day symposium for CEU credits with topics such as Weed Resistance, Glyphosate, Bt Traits, Drift Control, and Laws and Regulations. Or, attend the Texas Wheat Symposium and Ag Appreciation Luncheon Dec. 4, for updates on policy information, an outlook on the commodity market, and updates on other issues at the state and national level.

Amarillo Farm & Ranch Show takes place Dec. 3-5 at the Amarillo Civic Center. Doors open daily at 9 a.m. Check out the full list of exhibitors and schedule of events at
