Quad Cities Farm Show runs Jan. 17-19

ROCK ISLAND, Ill. — When the 25th edition of the Quad Cities Farm Equipment Show moves Jan. 17-19 into the QCCA Expo Center for its annual three-day run, it will give area farmers the opportunity to see everything that’s needed for their farm for the next planting and harvesting seasons.

The show will feature more than 200 companies show everything that’s new: long line, short line, seeds, supplies, chemicals, livestock equipment, grain handling, storage, buildings and replacement parts. Also showcased will be all the new technologies so vital for profits, from computer software to GPS systems.

There also will be self-propelled sprayers, seed tenders and an outstanding selection of outdoor power equipment.

This year’s show will give farmers the opportunity to see a number of companies that will display at the Quad Cities show for the first time.

Among the many new companies will be Maschio Rotary Tillers, Honey Bee Manufacturing, Ag Focus, T&T, Price Brothers, Pars4farm.com, Timewell Tile, Kuhl Grain and The Haymizer.

Honey Bee, a Canadian company, will exhibit its new Air Flex, designed for a faster harvest. It also was the 2015 winner of Manitoba Ag Days Best New Product.

Maschio Rotary Tillers, a division of Maschio Gaspardo — an international giant — will show its new line of rotary tillers.

Ag Focus will exhibit its new planter, Pro Fast Trac, that promises faster emergence, leading to higher yields.
T&T will display a full range of livestock equipment, including scales, meters, feed bunks and hay feeders. Also, Price Brothers will show hay rakes, implements and attachments for front-loader tractors and skid-steer loaders.

Parts4farm.com will display rake wheels, bale spears, net wrap and Herschel parts. Timewell Tile will demonstrate its line of drainage products, and Kuhl Grain will show Hutchinson/Mayrath and Sioux Steel products.

The Haymizer will exhibit its cattle hay feeders.

“Most of the farm shows today are sold out as farmers are seeing how well farm shows work in conjunction with their Internet research, and companies realize that they have to be out talking direction to the farmer,” show manager Richard Sherman said.

“All of our exhibit space is filled, and we do have a fairly long waiting list. In addition to the new companies, large spaces will be taken by many show regulars who are displaying their newest products,” Sherman said.

Among those companies are O’Connell Farm Drainage Plows, Z&J Farms, Rexco, Case IH, Kunau Implement, Brokaw Birkey’s, Iowa Farm Equipment, River Valley Turf with John Deere, Correct Truck, Vermeer, Calmer Corn Heads, Martin Equipment and Vern’s. 

Show admission and parking are free.

Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 17, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 18 and
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 19 at the QCCA Expo Center, 2621 Fourth Ave.
