(Harrisburg) -- The Pennsylvania Farm Show, which wraps up today, is a major agricultural showcase, where people not only come to look, but to buy and sell as well.

Along with the animals, the contests and the food, farm show visitors also get a close up look at tractors, harvesters, tillers and other large machinery.

Ty Kutt is a farm products dealer who says he also gets a chance to meet potential customers during farm show week.

"The demographics of central Pennsylvania that come to this location is really incredible when you look at it from the true ag-based customer, FFA, 4-H, to actually people just looking to see what takes place in agriculture throughout central Pennsylvania," Kutt said.

Kutt says the big machines are equipped with GPS and similar technology which helps farmers in planting, cultivating, harvesting and crop management.

The 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show closes at 5pm today.
