Video: Forestry Expo In Full Swing

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – It was a good turn out Saturday at the Mid-South Forestry Equipment Show in Starkville.

Running for almost 30 years, it’s the longest live demonstration of equipment in the nation, attracting thousands people every other year. The family friendly venue featured a tractor obstacle course and over 70 exhibitors.

“Our target audience of course is loggers and foresters and land owners but anybody can come and I think it’s fun for people to come out and see how we get our wood products that we all depend on and use everyday, how that process actually happens, this is part of that,” said Misty Booth, Show Manager.

From logging equipment , to logging contest, the show had lots to display.
