Finding Form in Farming

Last month marked the 49th OSU Farm Science Review, held at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio.  While grain storage structures, livestock handling equipment and the latest in agricultural technology may not sound like fertile ground when it comes to visual elements, the show yielded many colorful, graphic images.

More than 600 exhibitors displayed their products and services to help farmers improve their on-farm efficiency and profitability. This year’s theme, Where Farmers Go to Dream, emphasized agricultural innovation and helped seed new ideas and long-term vision for the farming industry.

The event attracts more than 140,000 visitors from all over the country and Canada, who spend three days perusing 4,000 product lines, while learning the latest in agricultural research, conservation, nutrition, gardening and landscape development.
