Farm Science Review seeking stories from first 50 years

As the Farm Science Review looks forward to its 50th farm show September 18-20, show organizers want to get in contact with individuals who were in attendance at the early Reviews dating back as far as 1963 when it was held at Ohio State’s Don Scott field in Columbus.

As the Farm Science Review looks forward to its 50th farm show September 18-20, show organizers want to get in contact with individuals who were in attendance at the early Reviews dating back as far as 1963 when it was held at Ohio State’s Don Scott field in Columbus.

“Progress is the very thing that the Farm Science Review is about, and we want to learn about
the ways the Review has brought innovation and technology to farmers over the last 50 years,”
said Chuck Gamble, manager of the Farm Science Review. “We can tell stories about the threeday
span of the Review, but the real impact is what happens after the Review inspires adoption of
new technology or methods on the farm.”

 

In particular, Gamble says he is interested in finding:
• People who have attended every Review
• People in attendance at the very first Review
• Innovations adopted after their introduction at the Farm Science Review
• Family memories that involve the Farm Science Review
• Multi-generational stories of Farm Science Review attendance
• Exhibitor’s innovations in the last 50 years

 

If you or a family member is interested in contributing, please submit your information along with
your contact information, memories or photos to lindsay@wiltpr.com (765-967-7539). Please
submit digital copies of photos, as they will not be returned.

 

This year’s Farm Science Review will be held Sept. 18-20 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center
in London, Ohio. Tickets are available for sale at local agribusinesses and any OSU Extension

agricultural research, conservation, family and nutrition, and gardening and landscape.
