“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.

The Butler Farm Show is saddened to hear of this terrible news. The Foertsch farmily has been a part of the Butler Farm Show for many years. We've watched this young man and his wife grow up and we love them dearly. Christian is the grandson of long time board member Harold Foertsch and his wife is the daughter of board member Randy Kummer. So you see the farm show is truly one big family! When tragedy strikes, families come together. We are asking you, part of our extended family to please show your support with thoughts, prayers and by coming out to the spaghetti dinner! This young couple and their children will be forever grateful! Thank you all. ... See MoreSee Less
