Stockman Show Draws Thousands to Hub City

Once again, the annual Farmer-Stockman Show makes it's way to Lubbock. Organizers say they anticipate more than 20,000 people this year. Some visitors from as far away as Switzerland. Here's a look at what you can expect to see.

From mighty motors, to wild water pumps, the 10th Annual Farmer Stockman show has it all. "The show is primarily for exhibitors to interact with producers whether these be farmers or ranchers. We have a lot of opportunities out here for those people to see the latest in equipment, what's latest in technology, and services and supplies in the agriculture industry," says Show Manager, Monica Hightower.

More than 120 exhibitors registered for this years show. Everyone looking for a chance to make a good deal, or get some good ideas. "Ideas maybe you can use on your cattle or hey equipment. Maybe new ideas you can build yourself," says Farmer, Wesley Clearman.

Ken Jones rolled into this years event with his new invention. A home built tractor he made in only six months. "It has an international harvester, and most of it's made out of car parts," says Jones. A new program this year is called Ag in a bag. It's geared towards elementary students and teaches them about the different aspects of the agriculture industry. Today they're learning about dairy products.

While the show is designed to demonstrate what's new and popular in the Ag business. Some people just like coming for the fun. "I like looking at the tractors and all the cool stuff like that," says student, Daniel McWhirter.
