Ag Showcase Day
FAIR HILL, MD The Ag
Showcase Day at the Cecil County
Fair again offered fanners the
chance to see some of the displayed
fanning equipment in action. Even
with poor haymaking weather, a
good number of farmers attended,
and the enthusiasm of the particip
ants was evident.
‘The event is always popular,”
said Amy Russell, Cecil County ag
agent “This is the 13th Ag Show
case Day, and we have a wonderful
volunteer group. The event is a
success because of all the good
people who work with it.
“Rather than just see equipment
on display at the fair, it is terrific to
see the latest equipment and tech
nology in action. If you have ques
tions. you can find answers in the
A 1 Miller, fair vice president in
charge of the grounds, said they
like to keep things moving in the
field at Ag Showcase because that
is what the farmers seem to enjoy.

Lancaster Farming. Saturday, August 6, 1994-DS
At last year’s 40th anniversary of
the fair, a number of antique trac
tors and pieces of equipment were
worked in the field. This year a few
pieces of antique farm machinery
were displayed but not worked.
But Miller said that because of the
popularity of that event last year,
he thought they may try to get anti
que equipment working in the
fields again in future years.
The theme of Ag Showcase this
year was forage quality. And most
of the equipment in action related
to forage. Activities included seed
selection, planting, harvesting and
storing. The event is held at Fair
Hill Horse Farm adjacent to the fair
Dealers involved in showing
equipment included: Ag Industrial;
C. B. Hoober; Biggs, Inc.; W. N.
Cooper, and Ben Haines. DTN
showed a satellite link to obtain
crop and weather reports. The
Cecil County Ag Extension and
Soil Conservation Service spon
sored the event along with Farm
Credit; Agway; Southern States;
Hoffman Seeds, and Ethel Murray.
