Husker Harvest Days 2017
Mark your calendars – Husker Harvest Days 2017 will take place on September 12-14.
Now in its 40th year, Husker Harvest Days (huskerharvestdays.com) will bring together anywhere from 400-600 exhibitors to Grand Island, NE from across the nation and even abroad. These businesses, made up predominantly of farmers and ranchers, ag businesspeople, and ag-related companies, will have the opportunity to connect with thousands of people – in past years, attendance has been over 100,000, which is incredible. Its impact on our state’s economy is major, as is the impact of these businesses on our lives locally, regionally, and nationally. Agriculture is profoundly significant here in Nebraska – it’s a billion-dollar industry that accounts for a sizeable portion of our thriving business climate. In fact, estimated to account for around one-fourth of the state’s total economy, it’s a percentage share that’s unmatched elsewhere in North America with the exception of South Dakota. What’s produced here in Nebraska is feeding our fellow Americans, and those across the world too.
Husker Harvest Days is the world’s largest totally irrigated working farm show, and the area’s largest and most complete one, featuring the latest equipment, supplies and technologies available to today’s producers. Attendees have a multitude of opportunities at this event, which is geared towards Nebraska and western Corn Belt agriculture. The newest tractors, combines and harvesters, grain-handling equipment, and irrigation technologies will be on display. Watch and even participate in live demonstrations of these as well as new models of pickups and ATVs, with all of the experts on-hand to answer questions. Or, check out the field demonstrations, crop technology exhibits, and livestock handling demonstrations. There’s so much more too; you really have to see to believe all of the amazing things going on at Husker Harvest Days, just ask anyone who has been before. With an exhibit field spanning 80 acres, it’s a massive display of what’s happening in agriculture today and what the future holds.

The Nebraska Soybean Board (NSB; www.nebraskasoybeans.org) looks forward to joining you at Husker Harvest Days 2017. Along with other commodities, we will be discussing the importance of Nebraska farming in international trade and marketing, animal agriculture and other related topics.
High Oleic soybeans arrived in Nebraska during the growing season of 2016, and they continue to improve product nutrition and extend shelf life. This variety has expanded the market for soybean oil and offers a premium to producers in specific areas. Take Action, a farmer-focused education platform, will also be on display to target weed and pest management and encourage farmers to utilize practices that decrease the impacts of herbicide-resistant weeds.
Stop by our booth and visit our other commodities in the Ag Commodities Building along Main Street at Husker Harvest Days 2017! For more information about the NSB, visit our website at www.nebraskasoybeans.org.
