Today the Colorado Farm Show will begin at Island Grove Park in Greeley. It is 3 days of education and seeing the latest in the agriculture field. This has been a northern Colorado tradition for ages and continues to be one of the best in the nation. This event is a very special one to me.
The History of the 48th Annual Colorado Farm Show is a history of volunteers striving for agriculture excellence. It is also ironic that the Nations' 4th largest Ag show takes place in Weld County, the fourth largest agriculture producing county in the United States. The 3 day event features almost 350 exhibits and draws over 30,000 visitors from all over.
Today marks an anniversary for me. The very first appearance we ever made as K99 was at the Colorado Farm Show about 22 years ago. Today I will return for the 21st time. I had to miss the farm show a few years ago when I had my heart attack, but that was the only one I have missed since the 1990's.
