Indy Farm Show Features 'Tribine' Harvester


Published: Friday, December 1, 2017

The 39th annual Indiana-Illinois Farm and Outdoor Power Equipment Show will be held Dec. 12-14 at the West Pavilion of the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.

"We appear to have a very good and very interesting show this year," said show manager Richard Sherman. "And the highlight will definitely be the appearance of the Tribine Harvester, which will be making its first major showing in Indianapolis. It is very possible that the future of harvesting is now, and area farmers will get a chance to judge the truth of that for themselves at the show. To my knowledge, this will only be the second appearance of the full machine at any show, Farm Progress and now Indianapolis."

The three-day farm show will feature large displays from John Deere, Case IH, Massey Ferguson and Cat, along with displays from over 250 companies. The John Deere display, the largest one in the show, will be presented by Koenig Equipment. With their recent purchase of Smith Implement, Koenig becomes the largest John Deere dealer in Indiana.

Free seminars will be presented at 11 a.m. The seminar schedule includes: Tuesday, agronomic issues, particularly weed control, plus the latest regulations on using Dicamba products, presented by Bill Johnson of Purdue University; Wednesday, weather outlook, presented by meteorologist Ryan Martin, and the 2018 market forecast, presented by Chris Hurt of Purdue; and Thursday, futures market, presented by Bill Gentry of Risk Management Commodities.

Show hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday. Show admission is free, but there is a $5 parking fee at the fairgrounds.
