Technology is vital to growing the food, fuel and fiber in today’s farming operations allowing farmers to quite literally, get more with less. But what kind of technology is being used and how is it impacting the land, our environment and the farmer’s productivity? That is the theme of Ohio Farm Bureau’s interactive display and exhibit at this year’s Power Show Ohio.
Technology in agriculture will be on full display as attendees of Ohio’s largest indoor power show experience the interactive display and exhibit presented by Ohio Farm Bureau and industry partners. The dynamic interactive display will show how farmers use technology to manage water quality, soil and nutrients, and how they use cutting edge technology like solar, drones, GPS and robotics to best manage our natural resources and produce the abundance that supports our diet and our economy. Displays will include activities for all ages, including a combine simulator, an augmented virtual reality landscape, solar power, drones, and more.
Additionally, Friday, Jan. 27 is Farm Bureau Member Appreciation Day at the show. Members who attend that day and visit OFBF’s display receive a
$5 Bob Evans gift card while supplies last and can enter to win a Big Green Egg, bbq tools and Certified Angus Beef package valued at more than $2,500.
To enter, you must show your membership card or the Member Savings Advantage app on your smart phone. Other prizes and giveaways will be available.
Power Show Ohio is the area’s largest indoor show, with more than 200 exhibitors displaying products and services from more than 500 companies. This three day event gives attendees access to the newest in the power equipment industry including agricultural, construction and outdoor power equipment.
“Power Show Ohio has a long tradition of bringing the latest and greatest in equipment and power tools to Ohio,” said Tim Hicks, OFBF business development field director. “We are very excited to partner with the association with a dynamic, interactive display that will help tell the farmer’s story to a wide and diverse audience.”
