Pennsylvania Farm Show Jan. 4-11 In Harrisburg, Learn About Agriculture, Conservation

The 104th Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg will run from January 4 to 11 at the Farm Show Complex.  The theme this year is Imagine the Opportunities!
The Pennsylvania Farm Show is the nation’s largest indoor agricultural event, featuring 12,000 competitive exhibits, more than 5,200 of which are animal competitions, plus more than 300 commercial exhibitors
“This January, Farm Show-goers will have a chance to explore the breadth of Pennsylvania agriculture, our heritage and the innovation driving our future,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “Each and every one of more than half a million attendees will have the power to imagine how they can support, or be a part of, Pennsylvania agriculture’s bright future.”
The PA Farm Show features informative displays by the departments of Environmental Protection and Conservation and Natural Resources, the Fish and Boat and Game Commissions and a variety of other state agencies.
Farm conservation has always been an important part of a variety of exhibits, including one by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation-PA, giving visitors a first-hand look at farm conservation techniques. 
Of course the live animals, the food courts and the 1,000 pound butter sculpture have always been big hits with visitors of all ages!
