FarmfestAttendees of the 2015 Minnesota Farmfest will get to see some of the newest products and latest developments in farm safety and innovation. The show, held Aug. 4-6 in Redwood Falls, Minnesota, is the third-largest outdoor agriculture event in the U.S.

“Farmfest is focused on technology and new products. It is one of the largest showcases for everything from input advances to drones and the latest innovations from around the world for agriculture,” said Ray Bianchi, senior director of expositions and events for the American Farm Bureau Federation and IDEAg Group.

IDEAg Minnesota Farmfest has been connecting the Midwest’s top farmers with the latest in farm equipment from local and leading companies for more than 30 years, and this year’s show is no exception.

NAPA Auto & Truck Parts, an official sponsor of Minnesota Farmfest, invites farmers to chat with their knowledgeable reps about equipment needs and check out the newest products and tools.

“With most of our stores being in rural southern Minnesota we know that farming is a big part of our communities and our business. Farmfest allows us to showcase many of the ways we can fill farmers’ tool and equipment needs,” said Steve Windschitl, president of STAR Group NAPA Auto Parts Stores. “We bring in manufacturers’ reps and staff who can fully explain features and benefits of our products and show how these tools can help farmers be more productive.”
