Equipment at Farmfest
I first saw this big piece of equipment at the North American Farm and Power Show in Owatonna. I was not sure what it was for. That one did not have the black extensions on top. I thought it might have been a manure spreader, then I saw a small door for unloading grain in the back...
Seed Row at Farmfest
This is a picture the Golden Harvest display on seed row at Farmfest. This is typical of all the seed companies at Farmfest. I always think about how much time is involved in planting and taking care of their plots at Farmfest. They plant their latest genetics with and without all the trai…
DieselSellerz Truck at Farmfest
If you are planning on attending Farmfest today or Thursday, you must stop by the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council's tent. On display is the biggest pickup I have ever seen! The guys from Discovery Channel's DieselSellerz custom-made the giant pickup that is on display…

Farm Family of the Year at Farmfest
The University of Minnesota Farm Family of the Year program was held this afternoon in the forum tent at Farmfest. It is always the wrap-up event at Farmfest. I believe there are 87 counties in Minnesota and about 70 of those were represented at Farmfest this afternoon...
First Day at Farmfest
When I am heading over to Farmfest I always leave the studio just before 7AM when John takes over. That puts me at Farmfest about 8:45. So, the row I am directed to park in tells me how many people are at Farmfest. There have been times when I parked in row B or C...
Nitrate Testing at Farmfest
George Rhem, the Discover Farms coordinator for the Minnesota Agriculture Water Resources Center, called me the other day and asked me to help get the word out to farmers about free water testing at Farmfest in Redwood Falls. Last year the Minnesota Agriculture Water Resources Center tested well and…
Jerry goes to Farmfest
It is going to be a busy three days as I head over to Farmfest on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Gilfillian Estate near Redwood Falls. Farmfest is always held on the Gilfillian Estate, so that means there are a lot of permanent buildings, gravel roads and grass parking lots...
