Husker Harvest Days 2017
September 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 14, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
Now in its 40th year, Husker Harvest Days (huskerharvestdays.com) will bring together anywhere from 400-600 exhibitors to Grand Island, NE from across the nation and even abroad. These businesses, made up predominantly of farmers and ranchers, ag businesspeople, and ag-related companies, will have the opportunity to connect with thousands of people – in past years, attendance has been over 100,000, which is incredible. Its impact on our state’s economy is major, as is the impact of these businesses on our lives locally, regionally, and nationally. Agriculture is profoundly significant here in Nebraska – it’s a billion-dollar industry that accounts for a sizeable portion of our thriving business climate. In fact, estimated to account for around one-fourth of the state’s total economy, it’s a percentage share that’s unmatched elsewhere in North America with the exception of South Dakota. What’s produced here in Nebraska is feeding our fellow Americans, and those across the world too.
Husker Harvest Days is the world’s largest totally irrigated working farm show, and the area’s largest and most complete one, featuring the latest equipment, supplies and technologies available to today’s producers. Attendees have a multitude of opportunities at this event, which is geared towards Nebraska and western Corn Belt agriculture. The newest tractors, combines and harvesters, grain-handling equipment, and irrigation technologies will be on display. Watch and even participate in live demonstrations of these as well as new models of pickups and ATVs, with all of the experts on-hand to answer questions. Or, check out the field demonstrations, crop technology exhibits, and livestock handling demonstrations. There’s so much more too; you really have to see to believe all of the amazing things going on at Husker Harvest Days, just ask anyone who has been before. With an exhibit field spanning 80 acres, it’s a massive display of what’s happening in agriculture today and what the future holds.
