Farmers prepare for next year at Gateway Farm Expo
It's been a tough year for farmers, but that's not stopping people from preparing for next year. Thursday is the last day for the 43rd annual Gateway Farm Expo in Buffalo County.
The Gateway Expo gives farmers a chance to look at the newest technology and equipment in the AG industry.
The event features some of the newest innovations. Many farmers lost profit because of the drought this year, but they're not letting it deter them too much.
"I'm sure, probably a little more conservative because of the lack of funds from the drought crop. So, we're not necessarily cutting back a great deal, but we aren't as aggressive or looking at a lot of new things this year," said farmer Terry Woollen.
The show purposely happens after harvest is complete. By this time, farmers generally have a good handle on their performance and a fresh perspective on what they want to do next year.
