Another Successful Canada's Outdoor Farm Show

The 25th annual Canada's Outdoor Farm Show may be over, but they're already making plans for next year.

WOODSTOCK - The 25th annual Canada's Outdoor Farm Show has come to an end.

Everything kicked off with their opening ceremony Tuesday morning. Oxford MPP and Minister of Agriculture Ernie Hardeman was in attendance, alongside Woodstock Mayor Trevor Birtch and East Zorra-Tavistock Mayor Don McKay.

Communications Manager Amanda Mcfarlane says they were worried about the farming demos at the start of the week.

"We were a little nervous this year going into the show with the weather conditions. We had a wet setup week but the ground dried up in time to run great demos on Wednesday and Thursday."

The show also featured 20 never before seen farming products featured in their Innovations Showcase. 

Mcfarlane says they're already making plans for next year.

"We're always bringing the latest technology to the farming community here in Woodstock and throughout Canada. We're working on bringing in some new technology that has been debuted in Western Canada recently." 

Wednesday was the busiest day of the week. Vehicles had to be directed into overflow parking.

We don't have the final tally yet, but the three day event usually brings in about 42,000 people each year.
