This year’s theme, “Experience the Difference: Best Insights, Best Technology, Best Results,” signifies the Review’s rapid growth in recent years and its position as one of the best farm shows in the country.
129,864 visitors attended the Farm Science Review last year, with visitors coming from across Ohio, neighboring states and as far away as Georgia, Oklahoma, North Carolina and South Dakota.
More than 600 commercial exhibitors set up shop at the Review each year, displaying the latest and greatest in farming technology, products, machinery and equipment. For exhibitors, it’s a chance to reconnect with established customers and connect with new ones.
Farm Science Review visitors are invited to stop by the Ohio Farm Bureau building at the corner of Friday Avenue and Beef Street to talk with fellow members and staff about current Farm Bureau programs and policy issues.
Visitors who join Farm Bureau or renew their membership at Farm Science Review will receive a free gift. Visitors also may take their turn harvesting wheat on a virtual combine simulator.
Members can learn about nutrient management, water quality, farm bill and other policy and legal topics. Additional information from Farm Bureau member benefit providers such as Nationwide AgriBusiness, Medical Mutual of Ohio, GM and others will be available.
Visitors can have a conversation with Ohio Farm Bureau staff on Current issues at our Conversation Station. Topics to be covered include energy development, CAUV, 2014 Farm Bill, 2014 Election and water quality. See the flyer attached to this post for the schedule.
As always, free Ohio apples will be offered while supplies last. Sponsored by The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, the Farm Science Review is known as Ohio’s premier agricultural event and draws more than 130,000 farmers, growers, producers and agricultural enthusiasts from across the U.S. and Canada annually.
Participants are able to peruse 4,000 product lines from more than 600 commercial exhibitors and engage in educational opportunities with Ohio State and Purdue University specialists, Ohio State Extension, and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center. This year’s show will mark the 10th anniversary of partnership with Purdue University and Purdue Extension.
