The agricultural industry has continued to evolve. Rural family farms marked the landscape before big business boomed. 美国人, who once relied on subsistence farming, 转移到大规模, 工业化, vertically integrated "agribusiness.“然而经历了繁荣和萧条, the traditions and the new conventions, the 全国农业机械展 has found a niche that satisfies the changing needs of developing farmers.
Two shows shaped the beginnings of the 全国农业机械展. In 1963, the University of Kentucky sponsored an electricity demonstration and exhibit for farmers in Lexington. 最初的表演打开了一扇门, eventually expanding to include more types of power including agricultural power.
除了, the most prominent and popular commercial exhibitors during the first forty years of the Kentucky State Fair were related to the farming industry. Power equipment valued at half a million dollars at the Farm Implement Show took up more than thirty acres of the fairgrounds. Due to its popularity and the growing agricultural interests in the region, many knew the time was ripe to expand.
最终在1965年2月, 几百个农民, salesmen and crop experts gathered in the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center to start a farm show. That year, commodity prices were high and farmers were experiencing record-high profits. The farm show then added an entertainment element four years after its inception with the 冠军拖拉机拉. In 1969, the first 冠军拖拉机拉 was the first major indoor event in Freedom Hall and attracted 66 tractors in three classes. Now the nation’s oldest tractor pull continues to enjoy popularity with people whose heroes are farmers and whose obsessions revolve around machinery and horsepower.
Louisville’s location in the agriculturally-rich Midwest and Southern corridor was accessible and attractive to farm equipment manufacturers and dealers from around the nation. The exhibitors found an organized show in a central location where they could display their agriculture products, 服务, and equipment to an interested audience of professional and recreational farmers. The once-tiny farm show is now the nation’s largest indoor ag trade show and plans to host over 300,万名与会者及参展商.
Salespeople and industry experts spread over 27 acres of interconnected indoor exhibit space educating farmers and looking for potential buyers. 这个节目, 现在已经是第五个十年了, 展示了创新技术, 新产品发布, 和替代能源, 等. 除了 to gaining hands-on access to the newest and most innovative products on the market, attendees will also benefit from the selection of free seminars led by some of the industry’s top experts.
Industry officials and manufacturers seem to universally agree that, while large equipment sales remain strong, significant opportunities exist with the smaller-acreage farming machines. And that bodes well for the staying power of the 全国农业机械展. 有900多个摊位, the show floor provides farming equipment, technology and gear for every attendee.
Because the show is early in the farming season, it tends to help forecast the season to come. A feat foreshadowed by then-Kentucky Governor Edward Breathitt, who remarked at the opening address of the second annual 全国农业机械展 that the future of the show has "untold educational benefits" and "a myriad of other possibilities [for the] agricultural industry."
