“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.

Many romances have blossomed at the Butler Farm Show and many of those romances led two people in love down the aisle of a church where life long commitments were vowed to each other in the presence of God, family and friends! If you remember that spark of romance, share your story with us! Was it in the dairy barns? The Midway? The 4H/FFA dance? Tell us and you'll be entered into a drawing for 2 tickets to the 2017 Butler Farm Show!! ... See MoreSee Less
