Colusa vendors report brisk businesws
I am in Colusa today and tomorrow for the annual self-proclaimed "granddaddy of farm shows." Today I've been focusing on large-equipment vendors, who are telling me that sales in the past couple of years have been brisk as commodities prevalent in Northern California have done extremely well.
In the photos, from the top: Matt Dixon of Valley Truck and Tractor talks with a customer on the phone; 3-year-old Wyatt Bell of Yuba City gets the feel of a John Deere backhoe; and Dane Denlinger of Flory Industries in Salida, Calif., talks about sales.
There are lots of people here; organizers say it's been like a Wednesday crowd, which is usually the biggest day.
