Hawkeye farm show underway

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Tough economic times aren't keeping exhibitors home from farm shows this year.

The 22nd annual Hawkeye Farm Show kicked off Tuesday in Cedar Falls.  Equipment dealers, seed representatives, farm technology specialists and many other venders fill the UNI-dome.

John Mampson, marketing director for Midwest Shows, says products offered at the show are needed more than ever in these tough times.

"Throughout the very most difficult times, every acre will be planted.  So a lot of these things out here are extremely importaint to the folk that provide us with our food source."

The show runs through Thursday.  Doors open at nine each day.
