WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- The Big Iron Farm Show is expected to draw about 150 farm equipment buyers from around the world.

North Dakota Trade Office spokesman Jeff Zent says many buyers are coming from former Soviet states, where there is a big need for farm machinery upgrades.

Officials say the show will feature more than 600 vendors.

The Big Iron Show runs through Thursday at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo.
