“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.
