Fair and Farm Show Season

State Fair & Husker Harvest Days


Now is the time to be making plans to attend the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, along with the Husker Harvest Days show near Grand Island, NE.

Our Straub small tractor & implement sales staff, along with our Polaris sales staff will continue the tradition of having a fully stocked lot of Case IH Farmall & Mahindra tractors, along with Polaris vehicles during the Kansas State Fair, running September 8-17. They will be dealing on the spot on the tractor, ATV, side by side, or sport utility vehicle that you find best fits your requirements. Don’t worry though, if they don’t have what you’re looking for on the fair lot, as we will still have plenty of other models and configurations ready to go at our stores.


The Husker Harvest Days show is one of the largest outdoor farm shows in the U.S., and it held on a permanent site just west of Grand Island, NE. Each year our agricultural equipment manufacturers display their new products, and this year will be exciting with new additions from Case IH and MacDon.

Case IH will feature the new CVX continuously variable transmission in the Steiger 4wd line, along with an updated Maxxum tractor, which will feature the new PowerDrive8 transmission in selected configurations. MacDon will be displaying their new FD100 series draper heads on their lot, with many new features versus the current FD75 models. Of course there will be reps from our manufacturers there to talk you through the features and benefits of the new products. In addition, Case IH and CNHi Capital always have signups for special incentives, that you won’t want to miss.
