Economy Strong at Farm Machinery Show

Cindy Zimmerman

The National Farm Machinery Show is still going strong despite the troubles in other sectors of the economy.

Vice president of public relations and media for the Kentucky State Fair Board Vicki Glass says the 44th annual show was sold out two months ago. “With the economy as it is, you might not expect that, but that’s the case and we are very pleased to have that much interest continue year after year,” Vicki says.

The show has an economic impact for the city of Louisville of more than $15 million and also includes the Championship Tractor Pull, sponsored by Syngenta.

Watch a brief video that I shot with Vicki while walking around the show and recording audio at the same time – which was a little challenging, to say the least!
