“It began with a plow and grew into a family tradition.”

In 1947 a plowing contest was held on the Jack Roe property in Meridian. This was the birth of an idea to get the city folks, businessmen, and farmers together to better understand one another. Some farm organizations sponsored the educational program. The idea was so well received that it was decided to form an organization to keep the event alive. The organization became the Butler Farm Show, Inc., in 1948.

Butler Farm Show

Last week at the April meeting of the board of directors two visits made it a very special evening. 3 representatives from the Sylvania Foundation presented a check for $20,000 to the Butler Farm Show for the construction of a permanent dairy show pavilion to be in use at the 2018 farm show. Also, Dr Surkosky and a representative from the Lighthouse Foundation presented the board of directors with a plaque thanking the Butler Farm Show for their many years of support to the Kids Day America event held at the farm show every May. The board of directors pass along their heartfelt thanks for these two wonderful gestures. ... See MoreSee Less

Butler Farm Show

As we prepare for the 70th Butler Farm Show, we will be sharing some memories with you all. This photo was taken during the youth award ceremony a few years ago. Director Ken Metrick is shown here with Lee Roy Miller. Lee Roy was the last surviving founder of our farm show and this would be his final appearance and visit to the show. On the way back to the office after the ceremony, Lee Roy was asked if he thought the original group of men ever imagined that the plowing contest in 1947 would have grown into the event we know today? As Lee Roy gazed at the Midway lights through failing eyes he answered -"No. But as long as we have good directors, and they never forget why we're here, it will continue to grow for the future" . With that he said "good night - keep up the good work boy" and left the farm show he helped build for the last time. Our directors, Jr board, committee members and volunteers strive to hold to the values, the heritage, and the morals that our founders built their dream on. Come experience the tradition -- 70th farm show--august 6-11. ... See MoreSee Less
