A snow storm can't stop farmers and ranchers getting to the Buffalo Bill Farm and Ranch Expo. Wednesday morning -- the event kicked off with a rope cutting as organizers welcomed everyone to the shows silver anniversary.

The weather did have a big impact on the 25th Farm and Ranch Expo. Many vendors could not get to the show today. 108 vendors were signed up. While not all of them could make it today organizers expect big crowds on Thursday. They say the expo is a great way for producers to connect with ag-related businesses.

John Hales, the Vice President of the North Platte Chamber says, "These guys here are set up to sell product to network with their present customers and future customers. We are told all the time. it is one of the best shows they come to."

The Farm and Ranch Expo resumes tomorrow at the D & N Events Center from 9 am to 6 pm
