Animals, crops, machines: Here’s what you’ll find at the three-day World Ag Expo

News

Tuesday was opening day for the 52nd World AG Expo in Tulare. 

Organizers say more than 100,000 people attend the three-day trade show every year. 

People from all over the world come to the Central Valley to see the best of agricultural and technology.

From big machinery, to dog herding sheep and everything in between, there’s over 1,400 exhibitors at the expo. 

Those in the Ag industry will find pretty much anything they might need at the 52nd World Ag Expo in Tulare. 

“Here we have trees, we have cotton, we have cherries, we have dairy, we have some row crops, you’re just going to see a wide variety and that’s one of the reasons we attract so many from around the world,” says Carla Khal, chairperson for the 2019 World Ag Expo. 

Visitors from about 63 countries and 49 states come to check out what’s new in the Ag world, like this Keith Walkbox – a horizontal unloading system for smaller trucks.

A more safe and efficient way, Jeremy York says to unload cattle feed,  run bales of hay and more. 

“A lot of people delivering animal bedding, shavings, you can drive right in to the barn dump it right where it needs to be and you’re not worried about tipping up and catching power lines, trees, things like that,” says Jeremy York with Keith Manufacturing. 

If you’re looking to keep pesky birds from eating your crops, you might want to consider hiring a falconer. 

“What we do that’s Ag related is that we scare pest birds like starlings or crows away from crops like blueberries, grapes or cherries,” says Karl Kerster of Kerster’s Falconry. 

The World Ag Expo runs until Thursday.
