PA Farm Show in Pictures

January 13, 2010

Fresh Cut French Fries brought to you by the PA Cooperative Potato Growers, Inc. These were perfect with just a pinch of salt, no ketchup needed.

I really enjoyed looking at all the poultry and water fowl with my two cousins. Pictured is the younger one petting a bird. He was so gentle, it was sweet.

The oh so famous butter sculpture is at the farm show every year and always depicts a different image. This year’s sculpture is dedicated to the hard working Dairy Farmers who are a large part of PA Agriculture. The sculpture is made of 1000 pounds of butter and this butter will be turned into bio-fuel at the end of farm show.

I really like looking at all the Christmas Trees. This year my favorite tree was not in the section where you get to “Choose Your Favorite Christmas Tree”. My favorite tree was the White Pine with it’s long, soft needles.

This Penguin was created by members of the Pennsylvania College of Technology. Their booth features a different academic area everyday.

The following pictures show my time spent surrounded by the beef industry. My best friend and the farm she works at won Champion and Reserve Champion Limousin and Premier Limousin Exhibitor. I really enjoyed watching the Market Steer Show and the Open Show. It was interesting to see the amount of  non-ag people, who were amazed by the process of fitting a beef for show. I heard many women say “Oh look she’s at the beauty salon” in reference to the cow getting fit for the show.
