Well I have come home from Woodstock and had a great time. I filmed 19 interviews in two days and am ready for some desk time back at the office.
In this weeks VLOG I thought I would share with you my quick thoughts on the show and then a presentation of all my photos so that you can get a visual feeling for the show. Please check out RealAgriculture over the coming weeks to see all the great interviews and coverage of the show. I really think I covered some compelling things like the prototype silage blade, dairy water beds and the ever popular Harley Davidson tractor trailer.

I really believe that farm shows are meant to be outside. Walking around a dark dreary hockey arena when its twenty five below is not really inspiring. Being in the outdoors, watching tillage demos and test driving tractors is what farmers want. talking to your seed rep in a demo site is what farmers want.
For the first two days of the show the weather was great which meant some farmers had to stay home to harvest but the rain on Thursday meant that harvesting farmers could head into the show.
All I can say is please someone bring an outdoor farm show to Western Canada. I actually bumped into about ten people from the west who were either checking out the show for interest sakes or with work. Everyone had the same comment.
“This is great”
I hope that you enjoy this weeks VLOG.
