Call it a cavalcade of combines. Hundreds are wheeled into the Lancaster Event Center for the 6th Annual Iowa-Nebraska Power Farming Show.

"We have over 550 exhibitors here with over 900 product lines. They come from all over the world. A lot of the products are made in Iowa and Nebraska," said Andy Goodman, Director of the Power Farming Show.

"Every inch of the 400,000 square feet of the Event Center is being used for this show," said Goodman.

Fifteen-thousand people are expected to visit the show. Governor Dave Heineman is one of them.

"Agriculture is the number one industry in this state and there are a lot of farmers and ranchers here who want to look at the equipment," said Heineman. "It's the second largest show in America and I am very proud of them. I'm glad we are doing it right here in Lincoln."

The show will continue on Wednesday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Thursday 9 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Admission is free.
