Agri-Trade began in 1984 and has continued to this day, and is a joint venture of the Red Deer and District Chamber of Commerce and Westerner Park. Agri-Trade is considered to be one of the best Farm Equipment Shows to do business in North America. It is one of the shows in Canada that is supported by the major equipment retailers as a “National Stand”.
November 8-11, 2017 - Westerner Park, Red Deer, Alberta.

Its one of the shows i try to get to each year. Yes its a province away but we combine it with family and its a outing. Equipment is parked for the winter may as well look at new stuff, old stuff and way to expensive stuff.
Have my Black jacket and hat and ready to go.

Who else is attending. Reply With Quote

Checking out landscaping tools in Alberta. Reply With Quote
Nov 6, 2017 | 08:39 4 My crew will be heading down for a day. I usually check over the new gear to examine what the engineers have been up to and see if I can mod my old relics. That and try and figure out what some of the machines actually do. Reply With Quote

blackpowder's Avatar Nov 6, 2017 | 10:21 7 I'll be there first two days. Always go if can. Factory reps available if not too crowded. Some days a waste as cheek to jowl packed. Some days walk right up and start asking.

They actually called us a couple of weeks ago to see why we haven't bought anything in a while. Had to tell them no cash= no shopping. Never had an outfit call like that before. Things must be slow for them.

Us and a few friends are going Thursday.

Does dressing like the "Men in Black" get more attention from the sales guys SF3? I could bring my wife along since she taught German for a couple of years.😜 Reply With Quote

Nov 6, 2017 | 17:53 12 I have never been to that show. I am stuck in the '80s. I just spent the weekend sorting out electronic glitches in my wifes SUV. I dont have enough beer to sort that stuff out on farm machinery. There is the other part of this farm where I get kids ready for school and drive them to other activities after school and/or make supper. Farm shows are seldom attended.

I liked the phone call from RB auctions, it made me feel like I have a chance at buying stuff!! I gave the nice lady a similar response to Wooldland. Not really interested in too much. She made out like this was a recent theme within her list of customers. Reply With Quote

Scarf.....yes
Glasses.... yes but not thick and refuses to wear them.
Would probably have to dye the hair black too..... not going to happen.

I guess I'll just go as a regular peasant 😎 Reply With Quote
