With more than a century of history, the Iowa Power Farming Show has become the third largest farm show in the United States, according to show director Tom Junge.
“We have over 300,000 square foot of exhibit space and about 750 exhibitors,” Junge said. “One thing we take pride in is we have all ag displays. We have three different floors of big equipment and three floors more of smaller equipment.”
Last year the show attracted some 22,000 farmers from Iowa and several other surrounding states and Junge says it takes quite a bit of snow to keep them away. “Over half our attendance now is coming from at least two hours out,” he said.
Junge says Ag Leader Technology is a major sponsor of the show. “We wanted to work with a company that is progressive and precision is very crucial to farming,” he said.
