2016 QUAD CITIES FARM SHOW A MUST FOR AREA FARMERS
JANUARY 17 THRU 19 AT QCCA EXPO CENTER
ROCK ISLAND — When the 25th edition of the Quad Cities Farm Show moves into the QCCA Expo Center for its annual three-day run, Sunday through Tuesday, Jan. 17-19, it will give area farmers the opportunity to see everything that’s needed for their farm for the next planting and harvesting.
The show will feature more than 200 companies showing everything that’s new: long line, short line, seeds, supplies, chemicals, livestock equipment, grain handling, storage, buildings, replacement parts and 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.
The show will give area farmers a chance to see some of the newest trends in ag firsthand, and a great many of them are in technology, attempting to make everything more efficient. Farmers will see more in-cab displays, more creature comforts inside the cabs and design control changes that make it easier to operate today’s high-tech machinery.
There also will be information from the manufacturers on what they are doing to make planting and harvesting faster and more cost efficient than in the past, especially from the smaller manufacturers who may react more nimbly than the bigger companies.
Admission and parking are free. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday.
The QCCA Expo Center is located at 2621 Fourth Ave. Take Fifth Avenue and turn left at 26th Street onto Fourth Avenue at the expo center parking lot.
