    This show is better than the GIE show - I think. But they don't have the outdoor demo area (which totally makes the GIE show) But the Farm show takes up the WHOLE fairgounds and is FREEEEE - except for parking. the tractor pull is totally the BOMB folks love it. I think it is the biggest show like this in the USA?? Who's coming?

    I'll be there, we never miss it. It is a huge show. But I have to agree, the demo area makes GIE, both are great events.

    150 first visit for 1 hr - 110 each hour after that or each hour next visit - typically 1 or 2 follow up visits in next week and they are gone - till the next year or longer. Takes 4 hours to treat 1 acre for moles about 1` hour per 11,000 sq ft. But we will gaurantee the work! Can't do that with traps or bait!
