It's the event of the year for farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness in Amarillo.
The 2015 Amarillo Farm and Ranch Show will take place at the Amarillo Civic Center from December 1st until December 3rd. Doors open at 9 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. (4 p.m. on Thursday).
The Amarillo Farm and Ranch Show has over 400 exhibitors, including Assiter Auctioneers, Atmos Energy, Bayer Crop Science, Gebo's, Texas A&M Agrilife Extension, Texas Beef Council, and more. This year, they will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Conservation Reserve Program. This program allows the removal of environmentally sensitive land from agricultural production.
